Decision making meeting on hyper acute stroke services

A business case proposing the future of hyper acute stroke services in South and Mid Yorkshire, Bassetlaw and North Derbyshire was discussed, with a decision made at a meeting of the Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups (Wednesday 15 November, 2017).

The review, case for change and business case have been developed over the last three years with feedback from clinicians, service managers and patients. We’ve looked at patient experience and outcomes, staffing levels and each place’s ability to meet the necessary standards for their service.

The public consultation took place between 3 October 2016 and 14 February 2017 and the findings and feedback received has been incorporated into the final business case. The independent report on the findings is available here.

The NHS teamed up with the Stroke Association to show how changes in stroke services can save lives and reduce lifelong disability.
