Stroke patients in Surrey are set to benefit as Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation for Disabled People (QEF)’s Neuro Rehabilitation Services division is set to work in partnership with East Surrey Clinical Commissioning Group to provide more inpatient rehabilitation closer to their homes.
This new partnership will see spaces at the QEF Neuro Rehabilitation Service (NRS) brain injury centre in Banstead dedicated to providing this much needed provision, which is aimed at helping people recover following a stroke by accessing QEF’s unique concentration of specialist therapies.
A massive thank you to everyone that came to the Sutton Shopmobility consultation.
It's vital for us to hear from the service's users and other members of the local community what their needs are, so that we can make sure we're doing all we can to help people keep independent through mobility.
Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation for Disabled People (QEF) is extremely concerned that the new Accessible Air Travel Report published by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) highlights that travelers with disabilities are still experiencing significant difficulties at major UK airports.
