End of public consultation on improving stroke services in Coventry and Warwickshire

The consultation on the proposed options for the future of stroke services in the county, organised by the three local Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in Coventry and Warwickshire that plan and buy health services for local patients, closed on 2 February 2020.

As part of the consultation, we have received a lot of feedback from patients, the public and other interested parties. This has been through the online survey, the paper questionnaire and at a series of nine consultation events and 16 community meetings.

All feedback will be collated into a report, which will be sent to the three CCG Boards for them to consider before a decision is made about whether to go forward with the proposal for stroke services. This will take place in Spring 2020

The consultation feedback report will be available on the CCG and on the stroke consultation website at this time: https://www.strokecovwarks.nhs.uk/Home​

Consultant Clinical Neuropsychologist and Chair of the Clinical and Operational Group, Dr Gavin Farrell said “I have attended many of the events organised as part of the stroke consultation and have been impressed by the number of people who have attended to find out more and to give us their views.  It is very important that we listen and understand the views of local people when we are considering developments to local health services.”

The CCGs would like to take this opportunity to thank those who let us know their views.


We want to hear your views on the proposed changes to stroke services in Coventry and Warwickshire

The three local clinical Commissioning groups that plan and buy services on behalf of local patients, NHS Coventry and Rugby CCG, NHS South Warwickshire CCG and NHS Warwickshire North CCG, launched a consultation on 9 October 2019 on proposals for the future of local stroke services.   The consultation deadline has been extended to 2 February 2020.

We want to improve stroke services for local people. To make this happen we know we need to change services and invest in specialist rehabilitation, ambulance transfers and medicines. We feel that it is important to make this investment in order to reduce the chances of people having a stroke and the disability resulting from a stroke.

Our proposed options have been developed with local clinicians, patients, carers, community groups and our dedicated patient and public advisory group.

Check out the following documents for details of our proposed options, the work we’ve undertaken and how our proposals were developed:

Improving stroke outcomes in Coventry and Warwickshire

NHS Warwickshire North CCG, NHS Coventry and Rugby CCG and NHS South Warwickshire CCG are working together to improve stroke services for those people who have suffered a stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA – also sometimes known as a mini-stroke).

The three CCGs are working in partnership with social care commissioners, acute hospital providers and the stroke Association. The scope of the project has been to look at the acute and bedded rehabilitation services.

Key outcomes

The key outcomes of the proposed new service will be to:

Ensure fully integrated, end‐to‐end NHS stroke services are commissioned across Coventry and Warwickshire, in line with the national and regional (Midlands and East) stroke specification;

Implement a consistent stroke service and standardised levels of care across the local health economy;

Ensure that stroke services deliver:

  • Improved clinical outcomes;
  • Improved quality of life outcomes;
  • Improved clinical quality of care;
  • An excellent patient and Carer experience;
  • Ensure equity of service provision, patient outcomes and experience across the region.
