If you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) – a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of smell or taste (anosmia) – the advice is to stay at home for seven days. All members of this household should remain at home for 14 days.

If you think you have symptoms, please do not attend your hospital appointment until you are advised it is safe to do so. Please contact us to rearrange your appointment, or to re-organise treatment and tests.

Stroke Medicine

Our Stroke Medicine Service is based both at the Queen's Campus and City Hospital Campus and delivers specialised care to adults of all ages.

Care ranges from emergency assessment and treatments (including clot-busting thrombolysis therapy and clot retrieval) in the first few hours after stroke to rehabilitation (physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy).  These help the stroke survivor to return home and regain independence after a stroke.

The stroke service also treats patients with suspected minor strokes and Transient Ischaemic Attacks (TIAs) in a daily assessment unit in an attempt to prevent further larger strokes occurring.

The Hyper Acute Stroke Unit (C4), Acute Stroke Unit (C5) and TIA Assessment Unit are based at the QMC campus.  Ongoing stroke rehabilitation (Daybrook Ward) is based at St Francis Hospital within the City Hospital Campus

We apologise for any distress this will cause and would appreciate your co-operation at this challenging time.
