Frenchay awarded Headway “Approved Provider Accreditation”
Posted May 11th 2011
If the pilot project proves successful, Headway will then extend the scheme to additional specialist care facilities in the UK providing care for patients with head injuries with either complex physical and/ or cognitive impairment, who wish to take part in the project. Only centres and hospitals complying with the standards and assessment criteria identified by Headway will receive the accreditation and will be included in Headway’s Directory of Approved Providers for use by families and professionals.
Based in the grounds of Frenchay Hospital in Bristol, Frenchay Brain Injury Rehabilitation Centre provides a high quality intensive inpatient rehabilitation service for adults and adolescents (16-18 years) with traumatic or acquired brain injury.
Centre Manager, Alison Woods says:
“The team are delighted to
have received this recognition that the rehabilitation and care we routinely
deliver meets Headway’s high standards for patients and their families/carers.
This is a wonderful endorsement of our service and we are very proud to be
involved with Headway in this excellent project.”
Frenchay Brain Injury Rehabilitation Centre is part of The Huntercombe Group, one of the leading specialist healthcare providers in England and Scotland, offering professional treatment in the areas of Mental Health, Brain Injury and Neurodisabilities, Addiction, Learning Disabilities and Children with Specialist Needs.
