Where we are

Osman House offers specialist care and support for people with acquired brain injury (ABI) in a residential environment. It also offers a continuing rehabilitation service. In addition to brain injury, service users may have any of the following conditions:

Whilst service users will be medically stable, this does not preclude diabetes or epilepsy or other condition that can normally be managed outside of a hospital. Service users may be unlikely to have the potential to return to work, but may have the potential to succeed in a work placement / voluntary capacity.

You are welcome to call for an informal discussion. Otherwise, please include all relevant information about your client such as medical reports and records, as well as an indication of their needs and current situation.

The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT)'s referral service is free, transparent, available nationally and expert-led - we support you through the referral process every step of the way. BIRT provides a wide range of assessment and rehabilitation services to meet the needs of people with acquired brain injury (ABI). It does not matter if the injury was recent or a long time ago, or whether the person has had rehabilitation before.

  1. Complete and return the BIRT referral form
  2. The most suitable BIRT service will then be discussed with you
  3. Send us relevant information about the person you are referring, such as medical reports, records, an indication of their needs and current situation.
  4. We will contact you to arrange a pre-admission assessment with the person you are referring, to help understand whether our centres are suitable for their needs
  5. If we feel we cannot provide suitable service for the person you wish to refer, we will give you details of other relevant organisations that could help you
  6. Following the assessment you will receive a report with recommendations for service provision and associated costs
  7. We will also host a visit to the service of your choice so that your client, patient, or loved one can view the facilities and environment, meet the team responsible for service delivery and other service users
  8. Once funding has been agreed we will arrange admission to an appropriate centre. The arrangements will meet the needs of the person you are referring as well as their family and / or carers
