Redesign of the Dundee and Angus Stroke Rehabilitation Pathway

Hyperacute and acute stroke care pathways in Tayside were reviewed and reorganised in 2019 and are delivering improved acute care for people who have had a stroke, including delivery of thrombolysis and thrombectomy.

We are now reviewing stroke rehabilitation pathways to make sure that people who have had a stroke receive modern, evidence based and high quality rehabilitation in order to maximise their chance of making the best recovery possible.

We want to ensure we deliver person-centred specialist stroke rehabilitation and ongoing support provided by our specialist clinical staff supported by third sector partners. Within the proposed new pathway this care will be delivered at home where clinically possible. The engagement document contains more information, please click HERE

We are hosting events to give people a chance to hear about the proposed new pathway and offer an opportunity for people to have their say.

Public engagement events will take place on:

Thursday 29 July 2021                               10.30am – 11.30am

Wednesday 4 August 2021                        5.30pm – 6.30pm

Thursday 5 August 2021                            3.00pm – 4.00pm

Due to COVID-19 restrictions events will take place via Microsoft Teams.

Please email tay.angushscp@nhs.scot (by Monday 2 August 2021) to reserve a place, indicating your first, second and third choice of dates as applicable. We will send you a link to the event making every effort to accommodate your first choice. In order to manage the meeting effectively, we ask for questions to be sent in advance. Please include any questions with your booking request.

This redesign programme has been jointly led by Dundee and Angus Health and Social Care Partnerships with input from the stroke managed clinical network and Stroke Association. It is informed by feedback from those with lived experience of stroke, third sector stroke partners, clinical evidence, guidelines and examples of good practice from other areas.
