Providing the best stroke services possible across West Yorkshire and Harrogate to further improve quality and stroke outcomes is a priority for us all and something we are committed to achieving through the work that has been taking place across West Yorkshire and Harrogate and in each of our six local areas (Bradford District and Craven; Calderdale, Harrogate, Kirklees, Leeds and Wakefield.)
Stroke is a life changing event and evidence shows the care people receive in the first few hours can make a difference to how well they recover. This includes having specialist scans to assess the nature of the stroke and if appropriate receive clot-busting drugs (thrombolysis.)
Our work is all about:
- Preventing stroke happening across the area
- How best we deliver effective care when people have a stroke
- Ensuring there is good support and rehabilitation for people after a stroke
- Addressing the ongoing workforce challenges across the area
