Review of Stroke Rehabilitation Services


County Durham and Darlington Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and County Durham and Darlington Foundation Trust are currently reviewing community provision for stroke. 

The review will look at the current pathway which includes the specialist stroke rehabilitation provision at Bishop Auckland Hospital, as well as rehabilitation provision outside the hospital in the community.

The engagement activity will begin on Thursday 4 October 2018 and will run until Friday 9 November 2018.

The CCGs would like to hear from patients who have experienced a stroke and / or their families/carers and would like to give them their views of their experience of the rehabilitation services.  This will help the CCGs provide a service that delivers care closer to home where possible, and more continuity of care. They can get involved by completing a survey at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/CDDstrokerehabONLINE a PDF copy has also been attached.

If you have any forthcoming meetings, which will include stroke patients, families/carers, which are due to be held within the engagement period, they would like the opportunity to attend, to gather views and discuss the review. Could you please email NECSU.engagement@nhs.net or call 0191 3742795, with details to arrange attendance.

Please find attached the stakeholder briefing, which provides background and further information on this review. They would be grateful if you could please share this amongst your organisation/groups.
