We want you to give us your views on how stroke services across West Yorkshire and Harrogate could be improved to ensure they are fit for the future.
West Yorkshire and Harrogate stroke services engagement work closed on the 15 March. The findings from our engagement work will be published in May.
In 2015/16 there were 3,633 stroke admissions to West Yorkshire and Harrogate hospitals, with the majority of people over the age of 65 and half being 75 years, and the numbers of people having a stroke is expected to increase in the future.
People are living longer than previous generations after a stroke, and the reality is that up to two thirds of people in the UK could spend their retirement years in ill-health.
We’re asking you to give us your opinion of our stroke services via a survey which you can complete online at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/WYStrokeServices or by contacting Healthwatch Calderdale.
Consultation will follow later in the year as appropriate, with any final decision expected to be made by clinical commissioners in 2018.
