Endorsement for Headway factsheet from Royal College of General Practitioners

Wed 01 Aug 2018

Headway's factsheet Hormonal imbalances after brain injury has received endorsement from the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP).

The factsheet, which was reviewed earlier this year, contains information on how sustaining a brain injury can affect the balance of hormones in the body, and the effects this can cause.  For many survivors who have such hormonal imbalance issues, a GP is usually the first point of contact to get support.

The RCGP is the professional membership body of doctors in the UK, and provides ongoing support and training to GPs. With the endorsement of this factsheet, it is hoped that more GPs will recognise the impact of brain injury on hormonal imbalances, and that more survivors will receive access to the information and support they require.

You can download the factsheet and explore further information about brain injury using the links below.
