Burton Park is a neurobehavioural locked rehabilitation hospital for patients with acquired brain injury, many of whom will display co-existing neuropsychiatric or other conditions and present some degree of Clinically Related Behaviour that communicated distress. 

There are three wards offering 50 beds. Warwick Lodge, Dalby Unit and Cleves Lodge. A variety of care pathways are available, including acute and longer-term neurobehavioural rehabilitation and person-centred care, emphasising the least restrictive setting.

Warwick Lodge caters for service users with higher levels of physical needs. Dalby Lodge is a therapy-led pre-discharge ward preparing service-users for a return to community living, and admits service-users who have progressed through the pathway on-site as well as taking direct referrals.

The multi-disciplinary team includes Psychology, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Speech & Language Therapy, Physiotherapy, Social workers and Psychiatrists.
