Our region’s strengths in specialist rehabilitation are the topic of the latest report from Midlands Engine Health entitled Focus on: Rehabilitation & Trauma.

With the perfect balance between defence and rehabilitation-focused environments, the Midlands is the clear national leader in the rapid development and production of innovative solutions that transform the lives of people suffering trauma, injury and poor health.

Our region is home to internationally renowned academic specialisms in rehabilitation and trauma, such as those within the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine, plus a number of organisations that engage with the NHS, such as the NIHR Trauma Management MedTech Co-operative and the focal point of our region’s innovative rehabilitation and trauma ecosystem at the Stanford Hall Rehabilitation Estate, just outside Loughborough.

Here, we host the UK’s Centre of Excellence for Rehabilitation and Defence Medicine, the new £300 million Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre and the soon-to-be-launched National Rehabilitation Centre (NRC) for civilian care.

We are also poised to lead the UK in the study and treatment of long Covid, enabling those suffering from this new and devastating condition to be rehabilitated back into everyday life and work rapidly.
