The Brain Charity is delighted to have been invited to take part in next year’s European Neuro Convention at Birmingham NEC, along with two of our trustees, Professor Gus Baker and Dr Nicholas Silver who will be keynote speakers at the event.
We were very proud to hear that we had been chosen as Library of the Month for December 2018 by our library’s software provider. We use something called TinyCat (their logo is a little cat, aw), and their previous Libraries of the Month have included the U.S. Institute of Peace Library!
I was taken into the accident and emergency wing of the Salford Royal hospital, on 17th March 2015, with a life-threatening subarachnoid haemorrhage. I was only thirty-eight years old and had always been a healthy person. I was successful, career-oriented, and travelled the world while working too many hours with no time to relax and think. Then, one night, I suddenly became extremely ill, and my whole world fell apart.
As well as being the smiling face that greets visitors to The Brain Charity on one morning a week, our reception volunteer Amanda has also set up and runs our Knit and Natter group on Wednesday mornings. We caught up with her and asked her a few questions:
A new neurological patient experience survey is open, to collect vital information about the experiences of treatment and care, social care and welfare received by people affected by neurological conditions in England. The survey aims to collect enough data to positively influence future neurology services.
