Introduction

 

The Brain Injury Team is a multidisciplinary therapy team based at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital. We offer in and out patient assessment and therapy for adults (16 years plus) who have had an acquired brain injury and who are resident in Gloucestershire. The team offers intensive acute therapy immediately post injury, through community rehabilitation and outpatients follow up, sometimes years after the brain injury. We cover the spectrum of severe to mild brain injuries.
