Last next week we had the pleasure of sponsoring one of The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust’s (BIRT) educational seminars, focusing on ‘Struggling with addiction: Supporting adults with brain injury with an addictive past’.
Given that our team have seen the devastation that a brain injury can cause first-hand coupled with the invaluable support that we have seen The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust offer both the victims of a brain injury as well as their families, we were delighted to be able to show our support by sponsoring the event, which was held on the 14th of March at the Devonshire Hotel in Liverpool.
The seminar was the venue for over 60 health and social care professionals as well as our own catastrophic injury team, allowing them an invaluable opportunity to gather and discuss the issues facing those who suffer a brain injury.
Our Managing Director, Rachel Stow and Mark Belfield, a Director at Thorneycroft and the Head of our Catastrophic Injury team, both had the honour of speaking at the event and were delighted with the turnout and the inspirational individuals who were also in attendance.
Also speaking at the seminar were members of Redford Court’s Multidisciplinary Clinical Team, Consultant Clinical Neuropsychologist, Dr Ivan Pitman and Alcohol Outreach Nurse, Diane Sedman.
We look forward to BIRT’s next event and look forward to supporting such a great cause for many years to come.
