The aim of the event is to help relatives and friends of NSIC patients to understand spinal cord injury and how best to cope with it, both at home and in the community.

The morning will include meeting and talking with discharged patients and their relatives online
a great opportunity to ask them anything you need to know and receive practical advice on living with spinal cord injury.

I would be grateful if you could let me know of your interest in attending as soon as possible, so that we know you want to take part.
Please mention your name, the patient’s name, your relationship and their level of injury.

NOTE: We will unfortunately need to cancel the session if we don’t have enough attendees.
