Beyond ‘Talking the Talk’ and ‘Walking the Walk’
Thursday 20 July 2017
You are invited to join us at this FREE event to discover how advances in medicine, medical technology and major trauma management mean that people are able to survive serious illness and injuries. They can expect to recover and return to communities to fulfil their role in society and live longer, fuller lives.
The Bristol Centre for Enablement provides a comprehensive service for rehabilitation and specialist equipment needs of a wide section of population from young children to centenarians.
You will have the opportunity to see what the centre has to offer to the local population in terms of specialist assessment and equipment. Their lead clinicians will speak on their experience and overview of the services.
