Community Stroke Team

The Community Stroke Team is an inter-professional team (consisting of Nurse Case Manager, Specialist Occupational and Physiotherapist, generic assistants and a senior community nurse) together they support patients and their families once they are discharged from hospital following a new event. Ongoing therapy can be provided by the specialist therapists together with case management support. All formal six month reviews are also completed by the team with the support of the Community Stroke Consultant.
