The latest figures which rate NHS Trusts for the way they handle patients suspected of having a stroke have just been announced and Sherwood Forest Hospitals remains in the top 10 hospitals in the country for delivering stroke care.
The Trust is top in the East Midlands for recognising and treating patients who have had a stroke and has the seventh highest score in the country out of 140 Trusts, after being given an A rating by the Sentinel Stroke National Audit Programme (SSNAP).
The audit is carried out quarterly and this is the fourth time that the team has remained at the top of the score board. The team comprises of; stroke consultants, thrombolysis nurses, stroke nurse specialists, ward nurses, ward doctors, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, clinical psychologists, clinical audit assistants, emergency department staff, early supported discharge, members of the discharge team, radiographers, clinical pharmacy, dieticians and East Midlands Ambulance Service, all of whom are among the best when it comes to assessing potential stroke patients and ensuring they receive swift and appropriate treatment and follow-on therapy.
Stroke Nurse Specialist, Emma Gillies said: “It is brilliant that we have maintained our A rating and continue to be one of the best in the East Midlands for delivering stroke care. We are all really proud of the care that we give to our patients and it is so pleasing to see that we have continued to progress and build on our high standards.”
