Acquired brain injury – Call for evidence
The government announced its plans for a cross-departmental strategy for Acquired Brain Injury in December 2021. The development of the strategy is being overseen by a Programme Board, co-chaired by Gillian Keegan, Minister of State for Care and Mental Health, and Chris Bryant MP. The full statement by Gillian Keegan at the time can be found HERE
A Call for Evidence has now been launched. The views of people living with acquired brain injury, or other neurological conditions, and their families, as well as professionals working in this area are being sought. Rather than a formal consultation on specific proposals, this call for evidence constitutes a request for ideas on which the Strategy can be built. It will provide the Strategy Programme Board the opportunity to hear first-hand from the people most affected – to help find out what services are needed, where there may be gaps, and how the government can support services to help fill them.
