CPD For Professionals
Our peer befrienders all have lived experience of a long-term health condition, or a caring role, many have had strokes. This enables them to deliver training to a range of professionals as part of their Professional Development from stroke consultants to occupational therapists, nursing staff and many more. They offer a rare insight into what is like to live with their condition and what professionals can do or not do to help. This is hugely successful and has helped to shape policy at NHS stroke units.
