Brain injury conference to be held in Wrexham, North Wales
Thompsons Solicitors will be supporting Headway Wales’ annual conference for the third year running. The conference, which is called ‘Perspectives on Managing Acquired Brain Injury’, will take place on Wednesday 25 November 2015 at the Catrin Finch Centre, Glyndŵr University, Wrexham.
Chaired by Bill Braithwaite QC and Head of Exchange Chambers, the conference provides brain injury survivors and their families, healthcare professionals, case managers and carers an opportunity to come together to discuss the latest developments in the field of treating and managing acquired brain injuries.
- Dr Samantha Fisher, NHS neuropsychologist with Cardiff and Vale UHB NHS Wales who works with stroke survivors
- Professor Oliver Turnbull, neuropsychologist, academic and pro vice chancellor at Bangor University
- Dr Andrew Bateman, physiotherapist, neuropsychologist and head of the Oliver Zangwill Centre in Cambridgeshire
- Dr Kevin Foy, neuropsychiatrist at the Walton Centre in Liverpool
Imogen Wetton, a serious injury solicitor at Thompsons Solicitors’ Manchester Office, said: “Following an accident, brain injury survivors face a long, and often challenging, period of rehabilitation in order to rebuild their lives and regain some form of independence.
“From our work with people who have suffered a brain injury, we know the importance of good support networks, in particular from organisations like Headway. Headway in Wales provides vital services to brain injury survivors and its work has a hugely positive impact on the lives of people with a brain injury and their families.
"This year’s Headway Wales conference promises yet again to be a ‘must go’ event for all of those concerned about the management of acquired brain injury. Hearing different perspectives from specialist clinicians, survivors and their families will be the focus of the conference this year. Once again we are proud to be involved”
