Psychological assessment and treatment
At Birchwood & Co Case Management, we are SMART, goal-led and evidence-based with our recommendations. Our goal is to support clients to achieve as much recovery and independence as possible post-accident through rehabilitation. Our case managers work in an (MDT) multidisciplinary team and to a high standard so you have the best opportunity to achieve these goals.
We have the experience and knowledge to understand the complex nature of traumatic injuries and what recommendations are required to ensure complete support is provided, which not only supports the client but can reduce long-term rehabilitation costs.
We provide support and rehabilitation to enable clients to regain as much of their mental, cognitive and physical function as possible post-accident and help them to improve and lead independent lives after a traumatic event.
