NHS England’s Improving Rehabilitation Services Programme has recently launched new commissioning guidance for Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and their local partners. By choosing the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT), you will comply with the new guidelines for commissioning local rehabilitation services.
The BIRT guide to living - for adults with brain injury is a comprehensive and easy to use publication for people with brain injury, their families, carers and professionals working with them. FREE copies are now available from BIRT services across the UK and at our seminars and conferences, or via post.
Ann Buckler, Director of BIRT said today: “The BIRT guide to living is the first comprehensive guide of its kind. Written by BIRT’s clinicians, therapists and experts in brain injury, BIRT's guide is designed to offer support, practical advice and helpful information to those living with - or affected by - brain injury.”
