John Cheverton Centre
Information, self-help and rehabilitation
We aim to support you to live your life to the full, until the end of your life. One of the ways we achieve this is by offering a range of services in our John Cheverton Centre, which is on the same site as the Inpatient Unit.
Our focus is on helping you to reach and achieve goals which lead to you living as independently as possible, supported by a team of professionals and volunteers. We aim to give you as much influence as we can in making your own choices about your care. This includes expert physiotherapy and occupational therapy services and a rehabilitation gym. A range of complementary therapies are available and multi-professional drop-in clinics are held in private rooms.
How do I get access to services?
Your expert Earl Mountbatten Clinical Nurse Specialist will make arrangements for you to attend the John Cheverton Centre, if they feel you may benefit from the services that are on offer. The expert Clinical Nurse Specialist and John Cheverton Centre nursing staff will assess your needs and discuss with you which services you may wish to access. They will also regularly review your needs.
A social space for our Island community
The John Cheverton Centre is very much a specially-designed social space and is home to our popular Sunflower Cafe which is open for patients, families and friends as well as the general public. A range of art classes and music therapy sessions offer a creative element to what we offer to both patients and the wider community. You can read more about our social programme and what's on at the John Cheverton Centre on our community pages. Our wonderful Chelsea Garden can be found at the end of the John Cheverton Centre and is open to the whole community to enjoy.
