Headley Court – A Powerful Testimony To Hope

leave a comment »

Yesterday morning I was in a hotel room, going through my final preparation for an Enablement team training day.  As I got dressed, the BBC were covering Headley Court and the amazing work that they do there.

Headley Court is treating many soldiers returning from Afghanistan with amputations.

Throughout the program, and on replays throughout the day, were stories of heroism both on the front line, and now back home in England.

It was good to see an OT being interviewed (sorry I didn’t make a note of her name), which helped to explain the OT role within rehabilitation.

The BBC’s article, with some of the video footage can found here.

Tissues might be needed, or maybe that’s just me.
