New Stroke Unit Opens

The new Acute Stroke Unit was officially opened on 15 September, providing enhanced care for patients requiring treatment for stroke through co-locating stroke patients in the medical ward and providing a dedicated team of medical, nursing and allied health staff with expertise in stroke. It will enable patients to be treated with specialist care in the shortest time possible – which is critical for stroke patients.

The Acute Stroke Unit will benefit patients of all ages with all types of stroke and severity and enables patients to be assessed and treated promptly, with optimal care.
