I was honoured to speak at an APPG on Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) event yesterday, which brought together survivors of ABI at a reception in Westminster.
The group has done a great job of raising awareness of ABI and the need to improve neurorehabilitation services across the UK.
ABI is a hidden epidemic with life-long consequences. Neurorehabilitation is a vital part of the brain injury care pathway that ensures the best possible recovery for survivors – it is one of the most cost-effective treatments in the NHS. But neurorehabilitation services are variable and difficult to access, in-patient beds are lacking, community services are poor, and there is a lack of skilled personnel.
That’s why our group recently published a report on ABI – ‘Time for Change’ – which gives some key recommendations to the Government.
