The East Midlands Academic Health Science Network Stroke Rehabilitation Programme was commissioned from February 2014 and finished in August 2016.
EMAHSN’s stroke team has worked with partners to create patient-focused Stroke Service Directories, based on Clinical Commissioning Group areas. This initiative aims to ensure stroke survivors and their families/cares have timely access to up-to-date, appropriate information on local services, giving them more control and helping to make more informed decisions about their care.

Directories identifying services across the East Midlands are now available and being disseminated by a number of Acute and Community Stroke Service Providers.

The guides have been produced as part of EMAHSN’s stroke programme’s work to facilitate the provision of evidence based community stroke services across the East Midlands. We are keen to receive your feedback on these resources and would greatly appreciate your comments and suggestions.  We'd be really grateful if you could spend a few moments completing our survey.

We have also produced an Executive Summary, called; pdf'Directory of Community Stroke Services: A guide for survivors, families and carers' which explains how the guides were developed, with patients and cares, as well as why we produced them.

You can also look at the pdfstroke patient pathway diagram.  It provides an overview of a ‘typical’ stroke care pathway. The term pathway refers to a system of stroke services as recommended by research evidence. A ‘typical’ journey experienced by stroke survivors starts with admission to a hospital, then continues through community based rehabilitation and social care services. The diagram has been drawn by Ossie Newell who is a stroke survivor.
