Valerie Taylor, OBE and founder of the Centre for the Rehabilitation of the Paralysed (CRP) Bangladesh is planning to visit LSIC next Thursday (4th October). Valerie is a British physiotherapist who has been working in Bangladesh since 1969. Livability has been linked with CRP since the early 1990’s when both Stephen and I were seconded to work there for 6 years and this secondment was the start of the international journey. We think Val’s visit to LSIC would make a good news story, where we could perhaps demonstrate the global impact of Livability in developing rehabilitation services in low-middle income countries and using that learning to develop SCI services back in the UK through what is happening at LSIC and the results that have been achieved since the new service commenced earlier this year. This could then be woven together with excerpts from an interview with Val and some photos of the visit. We would really appreciate your guidance and advice on this.
