Headway partners with Healthinote to boost GPs’ knowledge of brain injury

Tue 05 Oct 2021

Headway has teamed-up with online platform Healthinote to help GPs to signpost patients and carers to specialist brain injury services and information.

The partnership will improve doctors’ understanding of the ongoing effects of brain injury while helping them to access trusted information from Headway.

Healthinote delivers easy to understand, engaging patient information from trusted sources. Through the provision of reliable, visual, immersive and interactive content, the platform works to improve the care doctors can give to patients remotely.

“The complex, fluctuating and often hidden effects of brain injury can make it difficult for people to get the help and support they need,” said Peter McCabe, Chief Executive of Headway.

“We recognise the challenges faced by GPs in not only understanding the complexities of brain injury but also signposting survivors and carers to specialist information and services.

“Too many people slip through the net and are left to cope with impact of brain injury without help of support.

“That’s why this partnership with Healthinote is so exciting.

“It will make it easier for GPs to provide patient or carer-specific information from Headway, whether in the form of our award-winning publications or signposting to local Headway groups or branches, helping us meet our goal of ensuring no one has to deal with brain injury alone.”

Dr Alice Wood, GP and Clinical Director of Cognitant, which developed and manages Healthinote, said: “Brain injury can be complex and, at times, life changing.

“As a GP, it is absolutely essential that we signpost people presenting head injury to the right specialist information and support.

“I am delighted that Headway will be partnering with Healthinote to ensure that GPs are able to direct patients and their carers to Headway’s invaluable help and advice.”
