The Marbrook Centre is a purpose-built specialist neurological and Dementia care centre near St. Neots, Cambridgeshire. This impressive new build has the facilities to care for 81 residents living with life-changing conditions such as Acquired Brain Injury, Spinal Injury, Stroke or Dementia.

As the centre is focused on providing state-of-the-art rehabilitation and long term care for private and NHS funded clients, Marbrook required an assistive bath supplier that could be trusted – hence Gainsborough Specialist Bathing was selected.


Open from April 2016, this service will deliver the very best care outcomes for each individual and their families, in a contemporary high quality environment. Its neuro rehabilitation care ethos is highlighted in the level of investment including a two bedroom pre-discharge training at. This is designed to enable individuals and their carers to gain the required skills and confidence to move on.

Architect and Contracts Manager Testimonials:

“Gainsborough Specialist Bathing is exceptional to work with. The whole design, installation and bath commissioning process was smooth and fluid from start to finish. Every member of its highly professional team knew exactly what they were doing which made our job so much easier. They delivered on all their promises – they did everything we required and their timing was perfect. It was obvious that this specialist company has extensive experience and every employee is a credit to the business.

A crucial part of the service that Gainsborough provided was the onsite visits by technicians and the regional sales manager. These extra visits ensured all the pre-installation works, fitting and commissioning were completed on time resulting in a final install exactly as specified in the drawings. Time-and-again problems arise between contractors and product suppliers due to a lack of communication and onsite contact. Gainsborough was completely different – pro-active and hands-on, which helped us meet tight milestone targets and assisted with keeping my client happy. In over 25 years of healthcare construction, Gainsborough is easily the best specialist bath company I have dealt with. I would recommend Gainsborough Specialist Bathing to all contractors and developers working in the healthcare sector.”
