Northern Ireland Acquired Brain Injury Services survey launched28th November 2022
People living with an Acquired Brain Injury and their carers are invited to share their views on the provision of services and support available in Northern Ireland.
Feedback is particularly welcome from users of Acquired Brain Injury services who receive, or would like to receive, education, rehabilitation, social or recreational services.
Please note that the response time for this survey has been extended. Survey responses must be received no later than 5.00 pm on Monday 19 December 2022.
The Department of Health is reviewing and planning Acquired Brain Injury service provision for the people of Northern Ireland. To ensure these future services are relevant and fit-for-purpose we need to hear from people in Northern Ireland who are living with an Acquired Brain Injury or from the people who provide their care.
Every year in Northern Ireland around 2,000 people sustain a brain injury and many more people are living with the long-term effects of brain injury.
The purpose of this survey is to help us learn from the people most affected by ABI, people living with a brain injury and the people who provide their care. Your responses will guide how we plan and provide future Acquired Brain Injury Services.
You can participate in the survey in the following ways:
- The easiest way to complete the survey is via the online questionnaire here.
- If you require assistance someone is available to complete the questionnaire with you on your behalf by phone on 028 9536 3057.
- To request an electronic version of the questionnaire, to return by email, submit your request to ABI.Survey@hscni.net.
- If you prefer to respond by post contact 028 9536 3057 and a copy of the questionnaire and a stamped addressed envelope will be sent to you.
Everyone with an interest in Acquired Brain Injury Services in Northern Ireland is encouraged to complete the survey.
