We are pleased to announce that Daniel Yorath House, our specialist neurobehavioural centre in Leeds, is now an Associate Member of the Independent Neurorehabilitation Providers Alliance. INPA is a group of independent specialist health and social care providers who share the common goal of ensuring the delivery of excellent care in neurorehabilitation.

Chloë Hayward, INPA inspector shared with us this comment about Daniel Yorath House:

“The service is led by a passionate and knowledgeable team who promote strong interdisciplinary working supported by a clear structure in terms of meetings, and mechanisms to exchange information, ensuring treatment plans are fluid and able to change as the client improves. Treatment interventions are carefully monitored and measured to ensure an evidence based approach to care and service improvement. Education for team members is ongoing throughout and is actively encouraged as well as a strong commitment to research.

Daniel Yorath House is a well established neurorehabilitation provider and whilst it easily meets the criteria for full membership, it has been agreed that Associate membership will be awarded for one year with a view to moving to full membership at the end of this period.”

We asked Lynsey Robertson, Director of Business Development & Programme Management, what the membership means to the Trust and she told us:

“We are delighted and proud to be part of INPA and this fantastic alliance. Membership of INPA not only raises our profile as an influencer but gives us the opportunity to contribute to the collective voice of INPA, highlighting the benefits of neurorehabilitation. The Disabilities Trust has a commitment of sharing best practice and innovation in the field of neurorehabilitation and this membership provides us with another level of quality assurance for those accessing our brain injury services.”

Well done to Rachael Harrison, the Service Manager and all the team at Daniel Yorath House for all their hard work securing this alliance with INPA.
