Hunters Moor Janet Barnes Unit provides neurorehabilitation and spinal injury rehabilitation in Hall Green, Birmingham. The 12-bed Janet Barnes Unit (JBU) accommodates those needing neurorehabilitation who also have complex physical rehabilitation needs. Part of JBU, the Community Reintegration Unit (CRU) provides neurobehavioural rehabilitation. It has 15 en-suite bedrooms with the flexibility to create independent living flats or bedsits, depending on the needs of the residents.

Dr Elie Okirie is the Lead Consultant to the Hunters Moor Janet Barnes Unit. A spinal unit, lead by Professor Wagih El Masri provides expert rehabilitation for those with spinal injuries.

Individuals have often spent a period of time in an acute hospital setting but once medically stable and requiring rehabilitation can then be transferred to Hunters Moor. Specialist nurses give care to those who are minimally conscious or in a state of low arousal and residents with ongoing nursing needs resulting from diabetes, epilepsy, open wounds and those with stoma, tracheotomy or feeding tubes can also be supported. An interdisciplinary team of physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, a neuropsychologist, nurses and rehabilitation assistants provide therapy.

Longer-term support can be provided for those individuals with progressive neurological conditions such as Huntington’s disease, multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease and Parkinson’s disease.
