Six-month review after stroke – South London Cardiac and Stroke Network

“Stroke is a long term condition. As such, survivors experience changes in their needs over time. Reviews can help ensure patients and carers receive appropriate support and access to services as their needs require.”

“There is clearly a strong onus on commissioners to establish robust review processes for stroke patients. However, the lack of evidence to guide the delivery of these reviews raises many questions: What should a review consist of? Who should lead the review? How should it be delivered? What are the benefits? What are the resource implications?
This guidance therefore seeks to answer these questions, focusing primarily on the six month review due to its inclusion in the ASI programme. This work has been informed by patient and carer engagement activities that have been undertaken in South London, combined with feedback from service models piloted and implemented elsewhere, and work undertaken by the national Stroke Improvement Programme (SIP) team.”
