The West Midlands Acquired Brain Injury Forum (WEMABIF) will welcome NHS staff and Chris Bryant MP to promote support and rehabilitation services
The West Midlands Acquired Brain Injury Forum (WEMABIF) is to hold its first meeting in three years today (17 June) at the Birmingham Conference and Events Centre.
The forum is designed to create an environment where brain injury survivors, their friends and families and specialist neurorehabilitation practitioners can discuss ideas and best practice across the field.
Today’s event, organised by Thompsons Solicitors, will include presentations from Chris Bryant, Labour Member of Parliament for the Rhondda and chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for acquired Brain Injury, and Dr Alex Ball, the consultant and clinical lead for Rehabilitation Medicine at the Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.
Taking place between 2pm and 4pm, around 50 prominent figures in brain injury treatment and support, both in the NHS and private sector, will come together to discuss new methods of treating and supporting people with brain injuries.
"The work that UKABIF and its regional teams do is invaluable in the raising of awareness of brain injuries. We at Thompsons Solicitors will continue to fight and campaign for everyone whose life has been impacted by a brain injury to ensure no one has to suffer alone"
WEMABIF is a regional branch of the United Kingdom Acquired Brain Injury Forum (UKABIF), a national charity that campaigns for better treatment and rehabilitation services in the UK for survivors of traumatic brain injuries. Thompsons Solicitors has long supported UKABIF, and is one of the founding members of WEMABIF.
“The work that UKABIF and its regional teams do is invaluable in the raising of awareness of brain injuries. Through its support links, those with acquired brain injuries - and their families - can access vital help as they manage their condition and move forward from what has happened.
“We at Thompsons Solicitors will continue to fight and campaign for everyone whose life has been impacted by a brain injury to ensure no one has to suffer alone.”
