Graham Anderson House (GAH), a specialist service with acquired brain injury (ABI) in Glasgow, has received a glowing inspection report from Healthcare Improvement Scotland (HIS) for the service that it provides. GAH is one of the national specialist rehabilitation and continuum services operated by the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust.

The unannounced inspection took place on 17th and 18th February and the report was officially published on 13th April.

HIS reported that the service had good systems in place to monitor and improve the quality of its care to service users, they also acknowledged the service for its multidisciplinary team approach to care provision, as well its involvement of service users in recruiting its staff.

We are delighted with the outcome of this latest report. All the staff at Graham Anderson House work tirelessly to provide the best possible care for all our service users, we are so pleased that the report recognised this.” Sandra Wylie, Service Manager for GAH.

GAH is currently undergoing a second phase of building at its Eastfields development. This comes after identifying, along with Health Boards across Scotland, a clear need for additional specialist services for those with acquired brain injury and behavioural disorders who require transitional living facilities for longer term support. Four bungalows offering services to 16 individuals will be opening this summer.
