Consultation on Hyper Acute and Acute Stroke Services in Kent and Medway: Ends 13th April 2018

The formal public consultation on on Hyper Acute and Acute Stroke Services in Kent and Medway will begin on Friday 2 February 2018. It will run for 10 weeks until midnight on Friday 13 April 2018. A wide range of information, including a full version and summary of the consultation document, consultation questionnaire, information on public meetings and events, some frequently asked questions, as well as detailed supporting documents about the information considered in developing the proposals, is available on our website at www.kentandmedway.nhs.uk/stroke .  We will add to and update this over the course of the consultation period, as for example more meeting dates get confirmed.

We want to hear from as many people as possible across Kent and Medway, and in our boundary communities in south east London and East Sussex. We want to hear from staff, patients and the public – regardless of whether they have first-hand experience of stroke services or not, and even if they have already been involved in some of our pre-consultation conversations, surveys, meetings and discussions.  Your support in sharing information about the consultation is a key part of ensuring those who want to contribute can do so.

All views are important and we will carefully consider the responses gathered through our consultation, alongside the other evidence and information available, to inform our decision about the future shape of urgent stroke services in Kent and Medway later this year.

If you have any questions about the consultation you can contact us on km.stroke@nhs.net.
