My Acquired Brain Injury Bill will receive its Second reading on Friday 3rd December. The Bill commits the government to prepare and publish a strategy to meet the needs of children and adults with an ABI.
Acquired Brain Injury is a leading cause of death and disability affecting over 1.3 million people and costing £15 billion to the UK economy each year. It is an issue for the Departments of Health and Social Care; Work and Pensions; Education; and Digital, Culture, Media & Sport; and the Ministries of Justice, Defence, Housing Communities and Local Government.
That is why a national cross-departmental strategy for Acquired Brain Injury is long overdue.
