Services > Short-term Post-Acute Rehabilitative Care (SPARC)

The SPARC service provides a consultant geriatrician-led, multidisciplinary rehabilitation programme for patients who are medically stable and fit for discharge from acute care but require a further period of multidisciplinary inpatient care to maximise the patient’s fulfilment and independence in his/her environment. This is achieved by a comprehensive multidisciplinary team assessment and rehabilitation to educate and support patients to reach their full potential and return home. The emphasis on the SPARC unit is on orthogeriatric care particularly for patients with fragility fractures.

The SPARC unit is a 27-bed unit providing up to 6 weeks rehabilitation to patients aged 65 years and over.
