N-ROL is a telerehabilitation initiative with UCLH Queen Square

During the COVID-19 pandemic, people with stroke and other forms of brain injury can be discharged home early from hospital and get less treatment.

In partnership with University College London (UCL), SameYou created a new service called N-ROL to bring rehabilitation virtually into patients homes. This integrated multi-disciplinary rehabilitation programme is tailored to each patient and includes physical, communication and cognitive therapies delivered to groups of up to 10 people at a time.

We are currently raising funds for other N-ROL pilot programmes and are already working closely with UCL, University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) and East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust.
