Life after SAH - a half-day workshop for patients and carers

Following the success of the conference Brain & Spine Foundation organised last year for patients and carers affected by subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH), the charity is pleased to announce a second event for this community on 16th September.

This half-day workshop will be led by expert speakers with experience in working with people affected by neurological problems.

The event will provide an informal setting for people affected by subarachnoid haemorrhage not only to ask questions to the speakers, but also to interact and exchange information with each other.

Accessibility: Please contact us at info@brainandspine.org.uk to let us know if you have any accessibility requirements.
