York House is a specialist neurobehavioural assessment and post-acute rehabilitation hospital for people with a non-progressive acquired brain injury. It forms part of the nationwide network of specialist rehabilitation centres provided by the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT).

Our clinical expertise and high staff-to-service user ratios allow us to offer exceptional levels of care and support for people with challenging behaviour and complex needs, and we are able to take referrals for those detained under the Mental Health Act.

Individuals may also have severe cognitive, physical and/or emotional problems including verbal and physical aggression, impaired social functioning, disinhibited behaviours and neuropsychiatric symptoms. Rehabilitation is based on a neurobehavioural approach and focuses on enabling service users to function more independently and to participate in as many of their previous roles and activities as possible, while developing their lives with privacy, dignity and respect.

York House is registered as an independent hospital.The service is provided by The Disabilities Trust in partnership with The Retreat.
