Specialist stroke rehabilitation at Redcar
Community stroke services and rehabilitation teams are now centralised at Redcar Primary Care Hospital, making it a centre of excellence for stroke rehabilitation.
The unit has dedicated beds, specialist staff, excellent facilities and the added support of the stroke early supported discharge team.
The new specialist stroke unit brings together community inpatient stroke beds with specially trained nurses and rehabilitation services such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy.
This enables nursing staff and therapists to work closely together and gives patients access to a wide range of experts on one site.
Stroke patients who would previously have been sent to Carter Bequest and Guisborough Primary Care Hospitals are now being admitted to the specialist unit at Redcar.
