This information has been produced to give you an update on West Yorkshire and Harrogate (WY&H) stroke care work. Keeping everyone updated is an important part of our work. We want to keep you regularly updated so that you have the opportunity to discuss developments as they progress.
Since the previous update in February 2018 there has been lots of activity in order to progress the WY&H stroke care work. Following the workshop that took place on 2 February 2018 we scheduled further workshops in each of our six local areas (Bradford District and Craven, Calderdale, Harrogate. Kirklees, Leeds and Wakefield) which took place during the week commencing 26 March 2018. The sessions included health care professionals, community organisations and people who have experienced stroke.
A further workshop also took place on 30 May 2018. The aim of the workshop was to seek people's views on our work to date and gain their views on the development of a decision making criteria for specialist stroke services to further inform next steps.
You can read more about the workshops and what people told us here.
We have also continued to work closely with our partners, stakeholders, community and voluntary organisations, clinical experts and our staff to inform our work and have provided regular updates to the WY&H Joint Committee (held in public) and the Joint Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee (JHOSC), the WY&H Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) Assurance Group.
You can read more about what people have told us and what WY&H stroke programme has progressed to date 'you said, we did'.
