I am a specialist health visitor working within the substance misuse field in Leeds. I would like to hear from other health visitors across the country that hold similar posts and would like to join a specialist group and attend a networking meeting in Leeds in March 2009.

Post-ABI rehabilitation

I am a specialist health visitor working in Leicestershire and would be interested to hear from any practitioners who are aware of local rehabilitation centres or intermediate care facilities for children post-ABI or post-surgery. This includes services that act as a 'stepping stone' between the acute services and home.
