West Park Hospital and Cannock Hospital are our specialist rehabilitation centres with 54 beds for elderly patients and a day rehabilitation service at Cannock Hospital. New Cross Hospital also hosts our Hyper-acute and acute stroke service.

We have well developed community teams for early discharge and on-going care in the community and a consultant-led community Elderly care service .We are committed to seven-day working and to further develop our Orthogeriatric service.
