Collaboration improves services for people with a spinal cord injury

Published on Jul 19, 2016


We believe passionately in providing the best possible services which have been shaped by decisions based by on clinical evidence, local need and best practice.

That’s why; in a piece of work led by Andrew Bucklee from the CCG’s Innovation and Improvement Team, we have been working in partnership with Aspire, Back Up and the community to research and understand the views and experiences of local people with a spinal cord injury (SCI).

At any point in a spinal cord injured person’s life serious medical complications can arise. These can be devastating for the individual, however, if well managed people with SCI can lead happy, healthy and active lives.

Based on what people with a spinal cord injury told the charities and the feedback from service providers, the research identified what was working well locally and provided recommendations of what could improve.
