A stroke is a serious life-threatening medical condition that happens when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and urgent treatment is essential. The sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is likely to happen.
We offer high-quality emergency care, treatment and comprehensive rehabilitation for people who have suffered from a stroke, supporting you throughout your journey with us from admission to discharge, and within the community.
Both of our main hospitals have Acute Stroke Units and rehabilitation wards as well as outpatient clinics and community nursing teams.
