We’re really thrilled and incredibly proud that Frenchay BIRU in Bristol has passed their re-accreditation with Headway, the Brain Injury Association.    Frenchay BIRU has been an approved provider with Headway for nearly 10 years when the scheme was launched and was one of the first pilot sites in the UK.

The Headway Approved Provider Scheme is a robust system of assessment involving on-site evaluation of evidence, together with discussion with staff, patients and, where possible, family/carers.   Representatives from Headway assess and verify that providers meet specific standards.    Only providers that achieve all the standards stipulated by Headway are awarded Approved Provider status.   It’s an important accreditation as it provides patients and their families with a sign of quality that can help them in their decision-making.

Our team did brilliantly on the day of the assessment and we received some outstanding verbal feedback which we hope to share with you on publication of the written report.
