Action for Brain Injury Week 2023

Action for Brain Injury Week or ABI Week is an annual campaign designed to raise awareness of the devastating effects of brain injury and is organised by Headway - the brain injury association, one of the UK's leading brain injury charities and a charity we hold dear to our hearts here at Potter Rees Dolan. This year the focus is on a powerful statistic - every 90 seconds, someone in the UK is admitted to hospital with a brain injury. 

There are many possible causes of brain injuries: road traffic collisions, a knock to the head due to an assault, strokes and brain tumours. A brain injury can also be sustained through the negligence of a medical professional during surgery or birth, for example. 

Everything about us as individuals is controlled by the brain; how we talk, how we move, what we say and how we feel. A brain injury can have devastating, life-long effects on anyone, and not only affect the person injured, but also their family and friends.
