Providing practical and emotional
support for all people affected
by brain haemorrhage


    The ‘Road To Recovery’ programme

    Delivered in association with The Walton Centre, The ‘Road to Recovery’ programme aims to broadly address many of the issues and problems facing brain haemorrhage survivors and their families.

    When undergoing treatment, or in the post-treatment period, it can sometimes be difficult to fully comprehend what has happened and what’s going on, often leaving patients with unanswered questions. These informal workshops, delivered in a friendly and relaxed environment, provide you with a great opportunity to have those questions answered.


    The Road to Recovery programme is funded and facilitated by the BHSG and is fully supported by a team of specialist health professionals including the Walton Centre’s Neurovascular Nurse Specialists.

    The Road to Recovery programme comprises of four two-hour sessions over four weeks. Throughout the programme a number of guest speakers, including Neurosurgeons, Neuropsychologists and other health professionals share their knowledge and answer questions.

    We encourage all those affected by brain haemorrhage, whether directly or indirectly to attend the programme, which typically follows the following format:

    Week 1.   

    An introduction to the BHSG and the work of the Neurovascular Nurse Specialists; followed by informal discussions covering both the medical and recovering patients perspectives.

    Week 2.   

    A Consultant Neurosurgeon talks informally about various aspects of brain haemorrhage and welcomes your questions.

    Week 3.   

    A Consultant Neuropsychologist talks about the psychological impact of brain haemorrhage and welcomes your questions.

    Week 4.   

    During this final session we cover practical issues including welfare, on-going recovery, ‘what to expect’ and access to other assistance and support. During the session members of the BHSG share their experiences with the aim of helping to speed-up your recovery.
