We listen to our clients and consider all aspects of their life and influences on their health and wellbeing in our assessments, recommendations and treatment.

Continuity of care, communication and compassion for our clients, their families and wider support networks, are integral to our case management.

Services provided by HCML

Immediate Needs Assessment

Our Immediate Needs Assessments (INA) provide a comprehensive record of the client’s journey and detailed recommendations for rehabilitation across all physical, cognitive, social and psychological function. HCML rehabilitation case managers liaise with all stakeholders prior to conducting the INA to enable a better understanding of the client’s needs.

  • Rehabilitation Case Management including catastrophic injury

    HCML provides bespoke rehabilitation programmes to enable clients to make a sustained recovery from serious injury. Our Specialist Rehabilitation Case Managers work collaboratively with multi-disciplinary teams and treatment providers to assess, review and coordinate client rehabilitation. From facilitating hospital discharge and ensuring relevant equipment and adaptations are in place, to enabling community reintegration, our goal is to achieve maximum independence and a better future for our clients.
  • Children’s Rehabilitation Services

    We provide case management and support for children and their families under the most complex of circumstances. We’re experts when it comes to understanding the child’s immediate needs and their future development when it comes to prioritising the appropriate interventions. Children who’ve experienced major trauma will need ongoing support as their own needs and goals change as they grow. We work closely with a range of clinical specialists, including the NHS and wider statutory services to source the most appropriate care, schooling and residential placements if needed.
  • Funding for Early Rehabilitation Access

    Where catastrophic cases require rapid rehabilitation intervention, we offer innovative funding solutions covering both Case Management and rehabilitation costs to ensure the rehab client’s immediate needs are being met.
  • Treatment Services

    We offer a range of treatment services from physiotherapy through to psychological assessment and therapy through our specialist network of providers. These can be provided in person or virtually as required. We also work with major hospital groups, diagnostic centres and consultants to coordinate a wide range of medical assessments, treatments and surgeries. Our Medical Director oversees the auditing of all treatment providers by our HCPC qualified clinicians to ensure the services are of the highest standard.

Testimonials for HCML

Read a Case Study from HCML

Acquired Brain Injury Case

Client B was referred to HCML after being involved in a road traffic collision which left him with a traumatic brain injury. They were 11 years old and had been in hospital, unresponsive in a coma for 12 months.

The hospital was under increasing pressure due to lack of beds and were planning to discharge Client B to another hospital without specialist rehabilitation. The parents wanted to care for them at home, but the family would need to be rehoused with significant specific adaptations made to the property.

When Bob conducted the initial immediate needs assessment, Client B was unable to actively participate or express their needs in any meaningful way and was totally dependent on others.

Bob quickly developed a rehabilitation programme that focused on small improvements with the overall goal to secure a specialist paediatric neurorehabilitation placement and appropriate schooling.

Bob worked very closely with the hospital multi-disciplinary team to secure an extended hospital stay of 6 months with intensive acquired brain injury residential rehabilitation while he negotiated a placement at The Children’s Trust (TCT), a specialist community rehabilitation centre for children.

Having a good relationship with Client B’s parents was integral to their rehabilitation, and Bob built this trust through continuous reassurance, enabling access and including them in all the decisions regarding Client B’s care and development from the outset.

By engaging with the NHS England Lead Commissioner and the business and clinical leads at TCT, Bob secured Client B a placement at TCT within 3 months of referral to HCML where they will be supported until the age of 19.

Client B has continued their recovery beyond expectation, gaining independent communication and physical movement that were previously not thought possible.
