A partnership between King's College London and King's College Hospital NHS Trust to improve the treatment, rehabilitation and care of people affected by long-term and progressive neurological conditions through research and development.
There is increasing realisation that the care of people with chronic and progressive disabling neurological disorders is far from satisfactory. Too often, care is fragmented, uncoordinated, and not suited to the specific needs of the individuals affected by these conditions.
The centre will integrate knowledge, skills and experience of palliative care, rehabilitation, and neurology professionals, in close collaboration with (and driven by) the needs of users, and the expertise of all the relevant community and voluntary services.
The King's Centre is an exciting development that builds on internationally recognised clinical and academic expertise in neurology, palliative care and rehabilitation. Nowhere have these activities been thoroughly integrated, despite evidence that many patients with long term and progressive conditions benefit from integrated approaches to care. This Centre would be unique in the UK and probably worldwide. In addition to developing a substantial research portfolio, the Centre would have an important interdisciplinary training role for undergraduate and postgraduate students.
The Centre will develop existing strengths in the research programmes within palliative care, rehabilitation and clinical neurosciences of King's College Hospital and on the Denmark Hill Campus of King's College London.
