In this section, we have leaflets for the Stroke Services department. Please only read the materials on the advice of your clinician.

The Recite Me accessibility tools can be used if you need assistance.



Early Supported Discharge for Stroke

You have been referred to ESD by the therapists at your Stroke or Rehab Unit. Once you are home a member of our team will telephone you – this might be booked before you leave hospital, or we will call you directly. ESD aim to assess you either over the phone or in person within 24 hours of your discharge home.


Thrombolysis for the Treatment of Ischemic Strokes

This leaflet tells you about having thrombolysis. It explains what is involved and what the possible risks are. It is not meant to replace informed discussion between you and your doctor, but can act as a starting point for such discussions.


Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA)

A TIA is similar to a stroke, except that the symptoms only last a short amount of time. With a TIA, a blood vessel in the brain may become blocked, but the blockage clears itself.


Welcome to the Stroke Team

Welcome to the Stroke Team. We look after 30 beds for patients who require acute care following a suspected Stroke. This leaflet aims to provide simple and practical information to people whose loved ones are admitted under the care of the Stroke Team.
