Surrey Integrated Stroke Service
The Royal Surrey County Hospital has developed a new approach for stroke care in Surrey by working in partnership with a neighboring Trust.
The hospital is able to provide specialist stroke assessment 24/7 for all suspected stroke patients.
The specialist assessment will enable patients to have urgent scanning and thrombolysis within 30 mins of arrival if patients meet appropriate criteria.
The patients will be nursed on a Stroke Unit with Hyper Acute Stroke beds, Acute Stroke beds and early rehabilitation beds before discharge home with the support of the Community Stroke team or for discharge to a specialist rehab unit if required.
The patients will be reviewed by a stroke Consultant 24/7.
