About Us

The Neuropsychiatry services within SLaM provide specialist assessment, investigation and treatment to a diverse range of patients. This includes adults with an acquired brain injury, including traumatic and anoxic brain injuries, stroke, Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) and Non-Epileptic Seizures (NES). Our patients may have a number of physical conditions which impact on their physical functioning and communication. This requires a high standard of care and attention to both their physical and psychological needs.

The Lishman Unit is a National specialist inpatient Neuropsychiatric unit, currently located within Bethlem Royal Hospital. Our Ward is split into two pathways, functional and organic. Both patient pathways require multidisciplinary care which will consist of a combination of Physiotherapy, Psychology, Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language therapy, Nursing and Medical input. The aim of admission is to help broaden patients levels of functioning and also to lower their distress around their diagnosis.
