Our community stroke hub is a multidisciplinary team which provides specialist assessment and intervention to patients with stroke within the first year of onset.
We coordinate the stroke pathway from admission into the acute setting and facilitate transitions into community services including long term care if appropriate.
We offer advice, support and signposting for clients, carers and relatives.
The team consists of specialists in:
- occupational therapy
- speech and language therapy
- social work
Our aim is to ensure that all patients with stroke have easy, timely and consistent access to specialist services.
We seek to utilise specialist knowledge and skills to ensure service users receive an intervention package tailored to their specific needs.
We maintain appropriate levels of contact with every patient within the first year of their stroke. This will include a specialist review at six weeks, six months and one year.
We work closely with acute and other community healthcare providers, as well as long term and third sector services.
