Stroke Care in the Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells Areas

Clinical teams at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells hospitals are working closely with GP leads from NHS West Kent Clinical Commissioning Group to develop and deliver new core key standards of stroke care, as part of on-going work to significantly improve outcomes for patients from west Kent and north-east Sussex.

 

The aim is to ensure all stroke patients have the same fast access to, and higher standards of, potentially life-saving care, round the clock, seven days a week, and collectively clinically benefit from similar high standards in other areas of their treatment and rehabilitation.

By doing so, the hospital trust and clinical commissioning group want to improve outcomes and reduce long-term disability for hundreds of stroke patients from west Kent who are treated each year.
