We are proud to announce our involvement in Headway’s first every brain injury conference in North Wales – The Route to Recovery – on the 17 May 2013.

Taking place as part of Headway’s national Brain Injury Week 2013, The Route to Recovery will bring together a coalition of health professionals – including GPs, occupational therapists, neurologists, physiotherapists and speech therapists – brain injury survivors and their families to discuss the latest policy changes affecting the treatment of brain injuries.

Leaders in the field will speak on the most recent developments in the treatment of brain injuries including the role of brain scanning in clinical assessment and how to support couple relationships following a brain injury.

Attendees will have the opportunity to share best practice across a number of disciplines, network with fellow healthcare professionals and listen to the experiences of brain injury survivors.

Thompsons is totally committed to supporting organisations such as Headway

Paula Porter, a Criminal Lawyer at Thompsons and member of the Criminal Justice Acquired Brain Injury Interest Group will share her expertise on the criminal justice system and its approach to brain injuries in a talk at 13.30pm. She said:

“I feel very privileged to be involved in what is sure to be a fascinating and informative event.

“Thompsons is totally committed to supporting organisations such as Headway in recognition of the invaluable care, support, research and resources they provide to brain injury survivors and their families.”

The all-day conference will begin at 9:15 on 17 May at Glyndwr University’s Nick Whitehead Lecture Theatre in Wrexham, North Wales.
