Improved access to stroke directory of services for pathway management

Organisation : NHS Lothian
Grant Amount : £ 15,937

Approximately 1400 people are admitted to hospital with stroke in Lothian annually and around 700 return home. Many require ongoing care and rehabilitation accessing stroke services delivered along complicated pathways involving a number of hospitals and community-based locations. Existing stroke service directories have been developed in isolation to describe services but do not give adequate standardised guidance to inform referral. This project will allow the Web Team to update the MCN website and an administrator to develop directories for the website with hyperlinks to available services – as a guide for patients, their families and referring clinicians as appropriate.
