STROKE SERVICES-WORKING TOWARDS EXCELLENT STROKE CARE IN KENT AND MEDWAY

The NHS in Kent and Medway, Bexley in south east London and the High Weald area of East Sussex, is holding a public consultation on the future of urgent stroke services in Kent and Medway.

The NHS in Kent and Medway is today (18th January 2018) announcing proposals to create three new ‘hyper acute’ stroke units in Kent and Medway. Although general stroke services are currently provided in Kent and Medway’s hospitals, there are currently no specialist hyper acute units that in other parts of the country have been shown to improve outcomes for people who have had a stroke.
