Staff at a neurological rehabilitation facility in Birmingham are celebrating after being accepted onto the coveted Headway Approved Provider scheme.
Hunters Moor, which specialises in neurobehavioural and spinal injury rehabilitation and can accommodate up to 37 residents, is part of the award-winning Christchurch Group. The team had to undergo a robust on-site assessment, will have to comply with a strict set of standards and are subject to unannounced interim reviews for the next two years.
The rigorous Headway scheme is designed to ensure that specialist facilities, like Hunters Moor, are reflecting the specific needs of people with Acquired Brain Injuries (ABI). Key aspects of the process include ensuring staff working within units are aware of and responsive to issues associated with ABI.
Richard McKenzie, Christchurch Group’s Chief Operating Officer, said: “We are particularly pleased with this accreditation as it was the last of Christchurch Group’s facilities to be approved meaning all of our services are now fully compliant.
“We strive to ensure that our centres are delivering the best possible care across the board, so to be officially recognised as a provider who goes above and beyond for both our service users and their families is a real testament to the hard work of our staff.”
Christchurch Group was established in 1998 to provide high quality brain injury rehabilitation within a community setting. The organisation has since grown into a leading provider of specialist neurological rehabilitation that offers a range of specialist services across eight centres in York, Lincoln, Birmingham, Northampton, Bedford and Harwell in Oxfordshire.
