Stroke Medicine

Our Stroke Medicine Service is based at City Hospital and delivers specialised care to adults of all ages.

Care ranges from emergency assessment and treatments (including clot busting thrombolysis therapy) in the first few hours after stroke, to rehabilitation (physiotherapy, occupational 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 clinic in an attempt to prevent further larger strokes occurring.

We serves a population of 750,000 people - and we treat around 1,550 strokes per year.
