Head Injury Service

Supporting people with acquired brain injury in and around Buckinghamshire

Introduction written by Andy Tyerman, Head of Service.

I would like to tell you a little about our services for people with a brain injury who live in and around Buckinghamshire.


The Community Head Injury Service provides services for adults with an acquired brain injury. This includes head injury (also known as a traumatic brain injury) and other generalised forms of acquired brain injury such as cerebral hypoxia (which means lack of oxygen to the brain) and infections of the brain, such as encephalitis.

We also see people with other forms of acquired brain injury (including stroke, subarachnoid haemorrhage and brain tumour), when needs would be best met by our service. This is most often people experiencing difficulty in returning to or remaining in work after a brain injury.

So what services do we offer ?

We provide person-centred, specialist assessment, community rehabilitation, family and vocational services across three linked services:

Where are we?

Camborne Centre, in Bedgrove, just south of Aylesbury town centre, our service is provided in the centre, at home, in the community and in the workplace.

For most people we start by sending an invitation for an initial assessment here at the Camborne Centre. If you have only recently been discharged from hospital you may have been visited in hospital or at home by our Brain Injury Specialist Community Practitioner.
