The new website gives detailed information of the facilities that the service has to offer which include:
The site features inspiring stories of people who have undergone treatment at Icanho and illustrates how the service has proved key to their rehabilitation and has helped them recover their independence and get their life back on track.
Vsitors to the site can also find out more about the clinical team at Icanho which comprises of Neuro Specialist Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Speech and Language Therapists, Social Worker, Neurologist, Clinical psychologists and Rehabilitation Assistants.
The website will make it easy for commissioners to find more about the referral criteria for patients and how to make a referral, as well as being easily able to download all the appropriate referral forms.
Healthcare professionals can also keep themselves informed through of the website of future training events provided by the service.
Icanho also has a very active Friends Group, made up of volunteers, who support the service through fundraising activities. Anyone interested in joining the group can find more information about doing so on the new website.

We really wanted to give patients and commissioners the opportunity to easily access key information about our service all in one place.
