Welcome to Graham Anderson House

We are located close to the centre of Glasgow. It is a specialist neurobehavioural assessment and post-acute rehabilitation hospital for people with a non-progressive acquired brain injury (ABI).

In addition to the main 25 bed hospital its new development Eastfields has four-bed single storey properties which include transitional living opportunities. Graham Anderson House and Eastfields form part of the nationwide network of specialist rehabilitation centres provided by the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT).

Our clinical expertise and high staff-to-service user ratios allow us to offer exceptional levels of care and support for people with challenging behaviour and complex needs. We can take referrals for people detained under the Mental Health (Care and Treatment) (Scotland) Act 2003.

What is Graham Anderson House?

We specialise in the rehabilitation of people who are experiencing behavioural disorders following a brain injury. Individuals may also have severe cognitive, physical and / or emotional problems including verbal and physical aggression, impaired social functioning, disinhibited behaviours and neuropsychiatric symptoms.

Rehabilitation is based on a neurobehavioural approach and focuses on enabling service users to function more independently as well as participate in as many of their previous roles and activities as possible, while developing their lives with privacy, dignity and respect.

Graham Anderson House is registered with Healthcare Improvement Scotland.
