Following on from our Cerebral Palsy Conference in 2015, Brain Injury Group have worked closely with Tim Jones, Legal Director at Enable Law, to bring together a training day providing an in-depth look at Cerebral Palsy to assist clinical negligence lawyers and health and social care professionals who support those with CP, to better understand the condition and how affected children can have a widely differing range of complex needs.
Speakers for the popular event include a Professor of Obstetrics and Honorary Consultant Obstetrician, a Consultant Neonatologist, a Consultant in Children’s Neurodisability, a Therapy Lead, a case manager and a QC.
