Insights from stroke survivors and providers of stroke care in rural England: Summary report – Commission for Rural Communities – 20 December 2010

“This summary report traces the ‘care pathway’ that stroke sufferers typically follow in rural areas– from emergency care, through acute and rehabilitative care in hospital, to care received afterpatients return home.

Concern for the adequacy of service delivery in a rural context has been a major theme of thework of the Commission for Rural Communities (CRC) and its predecessor bodies for manyyears – not least because in any survey of rural people accessibility to services always figures asa major concern.

This report provides insights from users and providers about both the delivery of stroke-related services in England and the challenge that rurality poses for those services. By examining how living in a rural area affects stroke patients’ experiences, this summary is a first stage in tacklingproblems of access.”
