Spinal Injury Seminar: The Challenges of Community Care and Private Care

Our third virtual Spinal Injury Seminar was hosted by Cari Sowden-Taylor & Ciaran McCabe, both Partners in the Catastrophic Injury Claims Team here at Hugh James. The focus for the seminar was The Challenges of Community Care and Private Care.

The seminar started off with Simon Pinnell, Advocacy Manager at the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA). He has worked at the charity for 8 years having previously been one of the Peer Support Managers. As well as managing the support line, Simon’s team handles the advocacy casework – a major aspect of this being continuing healthcare, which is what he discussed for this presentation.

We were then joined by Faye Hammond, Director and Lead Case Manager at Faye Hammond Consultancy. Faye is a qualified General Nurse and specialises in complex community care of severely disabled individuals. She has consistently worked within several complex care packages over 9 years, managing the daily routines and co-ordination future requirements for both the individual and their families. Faye’s talk was focused on the many complexities of care, and the role of the Case Manager and MDT.

Our final speaker was Lisa Morgan who is a Partner and Head of Nursing Care here at Hugh James. Lisa is an experienced and specialist solicitor leading in the niche area of NHS Continuing Healthcare. She has been instrumental in developing the legal department at Hugh James, who solely act for individuals and their families in recovering wrongly paid nursing fees. Lisa’s presentation was about the challenges of NHS Continuing Healthcare.

Our speakers were also involved in our live Q&A session at the end of the Seminar.
