Neuro-rehab - Stockport

Contact Information

Devonshire Centre for Neuro-Rehabilitation - 0161 419 4545/4546 (ward office)

About Our Service

Our Devonshire Centre for Neuro-Rehabilitation is a purpose built unit located near to the old Cherry Tree Hospital site on Cherry tree Lane, off Dialstone Lane, Stockport.


The Devonshire Centre is 19-bedded neuro-rehabilitation unit for the residents of Stockport and the surrounding areas for patients who have suffered serious head injuries or who suffer from chronic neurological illnesses. The building was specifically designed for the provision of inpatient care for patients requiring neuro-rehabilitation and a majority of the accommodation is provided in single rooms. The Devonshire Centre contains a purposely built therapy room and a gymnasium for physiotherapy.

The service accommodates referrals from Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust as the acute neurosciences centre. Patients are also referred to the Devonshire Centre from Stepping Hill Hospital and other local hospitals as well as from community healthcare services if they have a patient who requires inpatient therapy.

Our Expertise

We hope to be able to send our patients home rehabilitated and to live their lives as independently as possible. This can require a stay at the Devonshire Centre that exceeds the duration of a typical hospital stay; with this in mind, we try to make the environment as friendly as possible with activities including film night and take-away night.

The team at the Devonshire Centre includes consultants in rehabilitation medicine, junior medical staff, nursing staff, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists and a psychologist experienced in the field of neuro-rehabilitation. Between us, we try to ensure that all aspects of rehabilitation are provided as required to ensure as full a recovery as possible.
