Neurological Rehabilitation Expo a chance to further enhance our support to brain and spinal cord injury victims



By Amanda Stevens, Group Head of Legal Practice, Hudgell Solicitors

I am excited to be attending and speaking at the 2016 Neurological Rehabilitation Expo this week in London, the UK’s largest show for professionals working in the rehabilitation of neurological conditions.

The event, held over two days at ExCel on June 15-16, will provide the chance to hear from the leaders in neurological rehabilitation and learn about the latest advancements in treatment, alongside the most advanced products and technologies available to help people in their recoveries.

For me personally, as a passionate advocate for the role of rehabilitation within litigation throughout my legal career, it is particularly significant, and I look forward to speaking about the 2015 Rehabilitation Code, which provides the protocol for the rehabilitation process in compensation claims, for which I was appointed by industry representatives to chair a national committee.

It is also an event of high importance and relevance for the firm I represent, Hudgell Solicitors, given our work is increasingly focussed on supporting people who have suffered life-changing, serious injuries through no fault of their own.

As personal injury and medical negligence specialists, many people turn to us having suffered either brain or spinal cord injuries which have turned their world, and that of their families and loved ones, upside down.

Rehabilitation focussed on each individual’s needs

They often face a long and difficult road to recovery, and it is paramount that a clear and appropriate rehabilitation programme is provided which is focussed on their individual needs, both short and long term.

We recognise no amount of compensation can ever turn back the clock in cases of serious injury and illness, and that is why we not only focus on securing the best possible damages settlement for clients at all times, but also ensure our expertise secures clients access to the best treatment and ongoing support, to help them get back to the best possible health and lifestyle as quickly as possible.

There will be much to learn this week in London which can hopefully enhance our service to clients, and ultimately help improve lives.

We are committed to supporting the NHS Commissioning Guidance for Rehabilitation, introduced in 2016, which means we work to ensure the people we support benefit from joined up, reliable rehabilitation services that are personalised and consistent, whilst also ensuring recognition for their loved ones, and the support they also need.

Our aim is to help people make the best recovery possible, supporting their life aspirations and goals, such as a return to roles and responsibilities, where possible, ideally helping them hopefully back to a position where they can care for themselves, reducing hospital admissions.

It is with that in mind that we were delighted to partner with Paul Spence in 2015, a man who suffered a brain haemorrhage in 2012, but has since made a remarkable and inspirational recovery.

Paul has become our official ambassador, providing a one-to-one support service for the brain injury victims we represent, and an extremely valuable insight and understanding of the difficulties and challenges the people we support will face throughout the long, difficult road to recovery.

He has established a new walk-in support centre in his home city of Hull – Paul For Brain Recovery – a truly valuable community resource which was much needed, and will play a valuable role in helping many people stay positive, and achieve their goals after serious injury.

I’m delighted that Paul will be alongside me and the Hudgell Solicitors team on our Expo stand this week, alongside leading biomechanists, neurologists, physiotherapists, professionals working in acquired brain injury, and rehabilitation medicine specialists.

It is a great opportunity for us to discover how we can further help support the people we represent, and hopefully establish some valuable new partnerships.

For those in attendance, I will also be speaking on the Rehabilitation Code in Theatre 1 on Thursday, June 14 at 3.30pm.

I look forward to seeing you there.
