You may recall the conversations which took place last year asking for people’s view on stroke care, including the support given in the first few hours after having a stroke. You can find out more at www.wyhpartnership.co.uk

These sessions are all about updating you on our developments since then and asking for your views on the next phase of work. They will take a similar approach to the event we held on 2 February in Bradford. If you attended this event you don’t need to attend one of these sessions unless you would like to and you would be very welcome.

Please confirm your attendance by via email Jannine.Clark@wakefieldccg.nhs.uk or by calling 01924 317659. When booking please let us know if you have any travel and/or accessibility requirements.

If you are unable to attend one of these sessions, and would like to get involved please call the number above and we will happily talk through the work we are doing. Your views are very important to us and we want to ensure we do all we can to make sure you have the opportunity to get involved.

Further information

There were 3,600 in our area alone. In view of this, work has taken place nationally and across West Yorkshire and Harrogate to improve the quality of care and recovery for people who have had a stroke. This includes preventing stroke happening in the first place, improving specialist care, making the most of technology and our valuable skilled workforce.

Making sure our stroke services are ‘fit for the future’ is a priority for West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership and was included in our draft plan, published in November 2016. You can read this here. You can also find out more about the work we have done so far at www.wyhpartnership.co.uk/next-steps

We hope you can attend and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Best wishes

West Yorkshire and Harrogate Stroke Programme Manager
