Health Secretary asked to prioritise Rehabilitation

The CRA has written to Health Secretary, Steve Barclay to highlight the need to ensure access to high quality rehab services. 

BASRaT is part of the Community Rehab Alliance alongside the CSP and 32 other organisations. The CRA's letter states how timely access to rehabilitation remains the critical missing piece in tackling many of the urgent problems facing the health and social care system. 

The evidence of treatment outcomes for people with many health conditions shows that rehabilitation is as essential to good health outcomes as medicines and surgery.
