Digby Brown proud to support eighth Cerebral Palsy Scotland Conference

Cerebral Palsy Conference

Digby Brown was proud to support the Cerebral Palsy Scotland Conference again this year. The conference, now in its eighth year, was held virtually again this year due to COVID restrictions. It is a fully inclusive event for all those who have experience of cerebral palsy either directly, professionally or through family.

Attendees were welcomed by Stephanie Fraser, CEO of Cerebral Palsy Scotland and Ruth Kelliher, Head of Clinical Negligence at Digby Brown. There were a number of speakers throughout the day from a variety of organisations with all presentations themed around “What we have learned from COVID: impact and opportunity”.

As well as the presentations guests were also able to speak with a number of exhibitors who provide services and support for those with cerebral palsy across Scotland.

Cerebral palsy is the umbrella term given to a group of disorders and functions relating to brain damage that occurs either before or during birth, or during a child’s early development. It is the most common disability in children with around 1 in 500 births resulting in a cerebral palsy diagnosis.

Digby Brown’s Clinical Negligence team has many years of experience with cerebral palsy caused as a result of negligence at birth. For further advice, or more information, visit Cerebral palsy claims - help and legal advice for parents.
