Stroke Services Working Group

Homepage » Get involved » Engagement » Stroke Services Working Group

We will work with our communities as we implement the Hyper-Acute Stroke Unit and improve our Early Supported Stroke Discharge pathway which will offer more intensive support to get stroke patients active more quickly.

Next Meeting

Eden - information to follow shortly 

What it is:

We are holding workshops for the public facilitated by the Stroke Association.

We are asking three questions to prompt feedback that can help shape our thinking and influence the implementation of the Hyper Acute Stroke Unit (HASU) and the Early Supported Stroke Discharge (ESSD) pathway. They are:

  • What opportunities do these changes offer?
  • What are the challenges?
  • What do patients and their families/carers want clinicians to know as the service develops?

Emerging themes from workshops so far:

  • The acute phase of the stroke lasts for a short time and the implication and recovery / living life after stroke lasts much longer
  • Concerns about travel for people in west Cumbria
  • Concerns about people in south Copeland / travel times
  • Acknowledging we deserve a modern service 24/7
  • Opportunity to promote prevention and FAST
  • Opportunity to refresh and develop information for people after a stroke which could be ICC specific
  • Pressures on staff within the system at the moment
  • Organisations like the Stroke Association need more support
