UKABIF welcomes inaugural neurological patient experience survey launched by The Neurological Alliance

The survey is the first of its kind and aims to collect vital information about the experiences of care received by people affected by neurological conditions and help us to understand how much progress has been made in improving neurological services. It is open until Monday 15 September 2014 and responses are welcome from anyone with a neurological condition living in England.

UKABIF welcomes enquiries from the media. We are able to provide information about all aspects of acquired brain injury as well as experts in the field to talk about topical issues. Please call 0845 6080788 or 07903887655.
