Lay Representative to help plan new brain injury services - Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP)
Local health commissioners need your help to plan new in-patient services for people who are recovering from a brain injury, including stroke.
This is part of the local plan called 'Fit for the Future' to improve health services for local people. The new unit will help improve the quality of care given by providing specialist care to:
- Improve quality of care for stroke survivors
- Improve quality of care for patients who have suffered an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) or a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Reduce geographical variation by giving access to consistent levels of therapy and other clinical input to patients
- Improve patient outcomes and increase levels of independence
It is important that the commissioners take into account the opinions and experiences of brain injury survivors and their families when they are doing this. To do this, they want to recruit a Lay Represnteative to sit on the project planning group.
