Stroke Services update
The West Yorkshire & Harrogate HCP would like to thank everyone who took part in the stroke services engagement work in February and March 2017.
The engagement work, led by Healthwatch, was all about the sustainability of quality stroke services and reducing the incidence of stroke happening in the first place, wherever possible.
Over 1500 people gave their views via an online survey, outreach sessions with voluntary and community groups, and interviews with people in GP practices, rehabilitation units, stroke wards, and libraries. Stroke consultants also took part in sessions so that people could hear first-hand about the care and support available from health professionals.
You can read the engagement report and other information here
The engagement findings suggest further work is needed to reduce differences in the services people receive, so that no matter where people live and what time of day they are admitted to hospital, they are able to receive high quality stroke services. There is a need to maximise the opportunities to further improve quality of life for people whilst also reducing a person’s chance of living with a disability afterwards and that ongoing care should be provided at locations closer to where people live, and people should be transferred to these as soon as possible after initial treatments. Consultation will follow early in 2018, if appropriate.
We will keep you updated here as this further work develops.
