The Stroke Unit at Hinchingbrooke Hospital receives patients from Addenbrookes or Peterborough City Hospital for rehabilitation and discharge planning once they are well enough for safe transport, typically on the third hospital day.
We have the use of a twenty-five bedded stroke ward and a large gym area situated nearby.
Includes a Consultant Physician, a Specialist Nurse, Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists specialising in neurological conditions, speech therapists, dieticians and a Stroke Family Services Organiser working mostly in the community
We aim to:
- maximise physical and psychological recovery
- ensure that preventative secondary measures are in place
- facilitate a patient’s return home
- offer effective palliative care on the ward for patients with a poor prognosis
