Ronan Hynes, Partner and Serious Injury specialist said: “Head and brain injuries can have a devastating and life changing impact on the individual and their families. Recent research by ABI Ireland highlights an overwhelming need for neuro rehabilitation services in the community as part of a multidisciplinary team approach. At the moment, we have a gap in services between acute care, rehabilitation and longer-term support services and the Government needs to fast track its plan for advancing neuro rehabilitation services across the country.”

The Sellors Team will ‘Bake for Brain’ on Friday, 9th March 2018 to raise much needed funds for Headway. 100% funds donated will to go to Headway, Limerick.
