The team at Barnsley’s Neurological Rehabilitation Unit have marked this year’s Action for Brain Injury Week with a coffee morning for patients and families at the ward.
Action for Brain Injury Week, led by Headway, is taking place 13–19 May and aims to raise awareness of brain injuries and the impact they have on the whole family. To support this year’s ‘Hats 4 Headway’ theme, the patients and staff on the ward made hats which they wore throughout the coffee morning.
Anne Massey, ward manager said, “Action for Brain Injury Week is a great way to raise awareness of all types of brain injury, from the very severe to more mild injuries which can still have major effects on people’s lives.
“The coffee morning gives patients and their families a chance to meet our team and talk about their experiences. This is a great way of offering further support to the patient to make sure they’re offered the best possible care”
