Visits by physiotherapists, speech therapists, community psychiatric nurses, Opticians, chiropodists and social workers are available as needed.  The hairdresser visits once a week to provide hairdressing services.

Visiting specialists such as Incontinence Nurses, Tissue Viability advisor’s, Hospice nurses and Infection Control Nurses make regular visits in an advisory capacity.  Our local Surgery provide Brooklands residents with the Nomad System of Medication.   In – house training on the Nomad System is carried out for all new staff nurses and supervised placement nurses.
