Abstract

This review focuses on two factors which influence client access to care following head injury. These factors, namely the degree of rurality of a client's home town and the funding model to which they are allocated are discussed in light of the results of the 'Head Injury Impact Project.' National and international publications, anecdotal reports and clinical experience illustrating current practices in care provision both nationally and internationally are then described. Finally, future research is proposed investigating perceived variations in access to services according to location, funding and other factors.
