Here you will be able to access information on a wide range of subjects that will hopefully be of interest to you and your patients or clients.
Many of our ‘Fast Facts’ information sheets address legal matters surrounding health and social care in the context of brain injury, while others deal with broader related subjects like personal injury claims.
These resources are being developed with the assistance of our members and we intend to build a valuable virtual library of accessible information, so please keep coming back to see what’s been added.
If there are any topics you would particularly like to see covered, please let us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
