Mediclinic George Neuro Clinic is a voluntary facility that offers 40 beds, including private, semi-private as well as two 4-bed units in a homely atmosphere. It was established in 1995 and has developed a solid and trusted reputation for quality care, developing programmes to meet the needs of our clients. Treatment modalities available include psychotherapy, medication, group therapy, creative activities and relaxation therapy.
Our communal dining hall boasts a scenic view of a lovely garden. Our patients also have access to a gym facility situated within the premises, with a treating Psychiatrist's consent. Relaxation / Gym Facilities include television, pool table, table tennis, various board games etc, exercise bicycle, rower, boxing bag and online workout programmes.
We have strict access control and visiting hours are upheld at Neuro Clinic to ensure privacy and safety for our patients and eliminate any possible interruptions, promoting a therapeutic environment. Our facility also has an arts and crafts room and we encourage our patients to take part in fabric painting, pottery, leatherwork, glass painting, etc. as well as to continue these activities after discharge in order to enhance the therapeutic value and promote a healthy lifestyle.
At our facility, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive care and support for our patients. As such, we have seven highly qualified independent Psychiatrists who conduct thorough assessments of patients in their rooms prior to admission. This allows for a more personalised approach to treatment and ensures that our patients receive the care and attention they need.
In addition to our psychiatrists, we have a team of dedicated Psychiatric trained nurses who are equipped with the tools and expertise to provide world class care to our patients. These nurses conduct daily rounds with patients to discuss house rules, daily routines, and any challenges they may be facing. This proactive approach allows us to address any issues as promptly as possible, ensuring a positive experience for our patients.
At our facility, we understand that even the most basic needs can have a significant impact on our patients' well-being. Patients have the option to send their laundry to a private laundry service at their own cost.
Our multidisciplinary team includes psychologists, dieticians, physiotherapists from independent practices and an in-house social worker who provides vital support to our patients which includes financial, marital and relationship-related. These professionals are available to patients by referral from our psychiatrists.
Our occupational therapy service, together with a multi-disciplinary team, conducts a dynamic group session programme which is based on the holistic stress model. In individual sessions, our therapist evaluates work-related issues and guides patients to better manage these stressors. The programme covers various topics designed to help our patients cope and gain valuable skills and techniques that they can use well after their discharge. Conflict management, stress and burnout, lifestyle, guilt and forgiveness, self-image and cognitive restructuring are examples of topics included. The programme is however flexible enough to be adjusted to the needs of a specific group of patients.
We are committed to providing the highest level of care and support to our patients, and we believe that our comprehensive approach sets us apart from other facilities.
