We were recently one of the main sponsors of
the Northern Acquired Brain Injury Forum’s one day conference, held at St
James’ Park in Newcastle.
Named ‘Transition Across the Years Following
Brain Injury’, the event brought together speakers from across social care,
education, neuropsychology and the law, as well as families and individuals talking
about their own personal journeys.
Brown, Partner in our Medical Negligence and Serious Injury
team, is currently secretary of the Northern Acquired Brain Injury Forum and of
the UK Acquired Brain Injury Forum and is involved in the strategy to try and “level up”
the availability of community-based rehabilitation across the country.
this film he talks about the current “postcode lottery” in accessing
community-based rehabilitation following a brain injury and what needs to be
done to make it available to everyone who needs it.
