Trial brain injury clinic receives international recognition

A trial clinic which helps people with multiple diagnoses of mental health and acquired brain injury has received international recognition at this year's World Congress on Brain Injury. Provided by Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust's (CWP) Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) Service, the trial clinic combines neuropsychology, neuropsychiatry and neuro rehabilitation medicine to provide patients with a 'one stop shop' for diagnosis and treatment.

Since its launch, the monthly clinic has led to more timely and effective diagnosis, with patients benefitting from a near halving of the cognitive, social and emotional issues which can impact on daily living. The staff members behind the clinic were asked to attend the 11th World Congress on Brain Injury in the Netherlands, and an abstract of their research will be published in the international journal:- 'Brain Injury', the official journal of the International Brain Injury Association, (IBIA).

Dr Gavin Newby, Consultant Clinical Neuropsychologist, says:- "The Joint Acquired Brain Injury Clinic was created to support people who have both mental health conditions and acquired brain injury, who are at risk of having to seek help from lots of different services."

A recent patient wrote:- "Thank you for a wonderful service that has improved not only my life, but the lives of my family and the people I work with."

For more information on the Joint Acquired Brain Injury clinic, contact the Acquired Brain Injury Service on:- 01244 389 252.
