Parent specialty: Physiotherapy
The Stroke Outreach Team consists of a Stroke Nurse specialist, a family support co-ordinator, an Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapist and rehabilitation assistants. We also have access to dietician and speech and language therapy.
Where possible, we offer an Early Supported Discharge service to patients and our aim is to continue rehabilitation within the patient’s home setting. We have access to all the hospital rehabilitation equipment, therefore if patient’s have the ability and it is deemed necessary, we will facilitate gym sessions to achieve goals. We will develop an individual home exercise programme for patients to continue between appointments.
