Acquired Brain Injury Service

The Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) Service has been developed to enable access to specialist rehabilitation for people with complex needs following an acquired brain injury, whilst ensuring other health, psychological and social care needs are addressed. The service aims to provide rehabilitation to enable individuals to achieve their optimum recovery and potential following a severe acquired brain injury.

The client group are those who have complex and intense needs which can not be met by other local rehabilitation services and require individualised packages to meet their changing needs.

Where possible rehabilitation is provided close to home, however owing to the highly specialist nature of complex brain injury many placements are out of county.

The ABI team strives to allow people to return home at the earliest opportunity, whilst ensuring their needs are still met.
