Typical duration that a service is offered

Often people attend only for one appointment and do not need any further involvement from the BISC team. At times, however, we may ask people to return in the following months for a review. Reviews can either be purely medical in nature, when you will meet only the Consultant in Rehabilitation Medicine, or team reviews where you will meet other members of the team. These reviews will mainly follow on from when we have offered advice or recommendations, or provided extended assessments or brief interventions.
