Decision about Kent Stroke services


As many of you will know stroke services across Kent & Medway have been reviewed for many months now in a bid to improve services.

A number of options have been discussed and this week the Stroke Programme Board announced their preferred options. This will see specialist hyper acute stroke units being developed at the following sites:

  • William Harvey Hospital at Ashford
  • Darent Valley Hospital, Dartford
  • Maidstone Hospital

Our role at Healthwatch Kent is to ensure patients and public have been fully involved in the process to review stroke services. Our volunteers have independently scruitinised the process using our Best Practice Guide, and have been satisfied that people have been sufficiently involved in the process. 

All the details and the information can be found here.
