About our stroke and transient ischaemic attack (TIA) services
We provide expert stroke services with a 20 bed acute stroke unit for patients requiring acute medical and rehabilitation care following the hyper acute phase (up to 72 hours after the event). When patients are in our care, we:
- investigate the cause of the stroke
- treat ongoing medical problems
- provide support and advice on how to prevent another stroke
- help with rehabilitation.
We have a purpose-built ward for patients recovering from acute stroke.
We also see patients urgently referred with possible TIA(“mini-stroke”) from GPs or hospital teams, in order to confirm the diagnosis, start treatment, and thus prevent strokes.
We also run clinics to review patients post discharge, or see newly referred non-urgently from GPs and hospital teams.
