New support service

supportLast month we launched a new support service to help people affected by brain injuries across South West London receive better care and support throughout their recovery. We know from experience that as people transfer between wards in the hospital, between hospitals and into their home that continuity of care can be a problem.

The new service will help people regain their independence in their community by providing support, advice and information to people when they leave hospital. The service will be provided by HSWL’s new Services Manager Lauren Macready.

Lauren previously worked at St George’s Hospital in Tooting and at The Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability in Putney and joined HSWL in 2012 to run the monthly group meetings and socials. To find out more about the service contact Lauren Macready on 07722 861642 or
