COMPLEX LONG TERM CONDITIONS We have introduced a new service for adults with complex needs that includes respite and long term care. By merging skills and expertise with our sister facility Kings Lodge Centre for Complex Needs (www.kingslodge-redhill.co.uk), together we are able to care for over 100 adults with a wider range of complex spinal and neurological conditions.

We recognise that a number of these patients have specific needs that can’t be met in a hospital or general nursing home. Our service provides a nursing and therapy skill set that gives patients a better standard and quality of life, and combats social isolation.

THE ROYAL BUCKINGHAMSHIRE HOSPITAL


‘THE MOST BEAUTIFUL HOSPITAL IN ENGLAND’ The Royal Buckinghamshire Hospital was built in 1862. The attractive Grade II listed building was the first civilian hospital to incorporate the design ideas of Florence Nightingale who said: “It will be the most beautiful hospital in England”. Lord Rothschild laid the foundation stone for the new rear wing in 1905. The ‘Royal’ status was added after the future King Edward VII was treated here.
