“Every eight hours someone is told they may never walk again”
Spinal Cord Injuries Day is on Friday 17 May and aims to raise awareness of the reality for those affected by spinal injuries. At Spencers we are fully supporting the everyeighthours.com campaign and its calls for:
• Further medical research to develop more reliable treatments
• Better medical care and support for those people and families affected
• Guidance and support for those affected by spinal injuries to lead independent lives
Our work with clients affected by spinal cord injuries (SCI) has highlighted the important issues of treatment, expectations and improvements that are needed to our care system. So to raise further awareness we've presented these and other SCI facts on our Spinal Injuries in the UK page .
Please help us support the campaign by visiting everyeighthours.com and sharing on social networks (#Every8Hours).
