Quality, transformation and innovation , Supporter session

Access to high-quality rehabilitation (rehab) services is vital to helping people live extra years in good health.

This is true also for significant numbers of people living with a long-term condition, whose quality of life and need for health and social care services can be dramatically impacted through rehab.

In this session, you'll hear why rehab is so important for individuals, the NHS itself and for wider society.
You'll also gain insight on how the latest national guidance can be implemented so that everyone everywhere gains access to a service that is equally important as surgery and medication.
