This is how Barry describes his role in the Community ABI pathway:
“Working within Acquired Brain Injury Pathway, is very rewarding to me. I work within the Community Pathway and our patient group usually transfers from other wards in our service prior to moving to step down services.
No two days are the same and my role means I get to be involved in management decisions as well as clinical work with the patients on the ward. The patients have complex needs and the work can be challenging. But the rewards and the positive feelings you get when you help a patient achieve their goals are immense. The team spirit on the ward is very important and the feeling that everyone is there to support you.”
“In a nutshell I look forward to coming to work each day and helping to transform lives.”
