HL Deb 26 January 2005 vol 668 c162WA
Lord Morris of Manchester

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What representations the Minister of State for Health has received from Rehab UK about its training centres for people with brain injury; what reply is being sent; and whether they will take any action. [HL676]

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Health (Lord Warner)

A letter has been received from Rehab UK. We are looking into the circumstances described in the letter and will reply soon.

We recognise the value of rehabilitation for patients with brain injuries. This spring, the Government will publish the national service framework for people with long-term conditions. This will make recommendations that people with a long-term condition (such as those triggered by a brain injury) are given rehabilitation and ongoing support to enable them to be more involved in their community and to seek work opportunities or remain in work.
