Visiting our units

Due to seeing an increase in infections in our communities we may need to alter our rehab unit visiting arrangements. Before visiting please contact the unit and check that visiting is still in place. 

Who is this service for?

Elton Rehabilitation Unit is an inpatient rehabilitation service situated on the first floor of North Somerset Community Hospital.

Individuals must be registered with a GP and be aged 18 years and over.

What we do

Elton Rehab Unit beds are for people who no longer require acute hospital care but are unable to safely return to their usual place of residence.

There are eight beds located in NSCH (NSCH) and 1 spot purchase bed for this purpose.

Admission to the Unit should be for a period of multidisciplinary assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation for service users who are ‘medically stable’, but require a period of bed based rehabilitation/re-ablement which cannot be undertaken in their own home.

How do I access this service?

A formal referral from a hospital professional is required to access the facility to facilitate a discharge from an acute hospital bed.

I’m a clinician – how do I make a referral to this service?

A referral would be completed on a Single Referral Form (SRF) within the hospital and would be managed by the Integrated Discharge Team (IDS), through the Integrated Care Bureau (ICB).

Referrals should be submitted to:

Visiting the unit

Please contact the unit to discuss visiting arrangements.

Visiting for people under the age of 18 will be at the discretion of the Unit Lead or the nurse in charge. These visits, if agreed, will need to be prebooked with the unit team.
