New stroke service launching in North Wales

New stroke service launching in North Wales

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board is launching a Stroke Improvement Programme which includes opening three stroke rehabilitation centres and new prevention, diagnosis and monitoring services. 

The purpose of the new specialist community in-patient rehabilitation centres is to bridge the current gap in post-stroke care giving people who have suffered a stroke maximum opportunity to recover and adapt in the best possible modern environment. 

The programme also includes a new preventative service, where newly recruited stroke specialists will work with GPs to screen patients who may be showing signs that they may have a stroke in the future.
