Public consultation closed - consultation report now available

Thank you for sharing 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 are in the process of reviewing the Developing stroke Services in Coventry and Warwickshire Public Consultation Report. The report was compiled using feedback from patients, the public and other interested parties during the consultation which closed on 2 February 2020. 

The feedback included responses to the online survey, the paper questionnaire and from a series of meetings and events.  A total of nine public consultation events and 16 community outreach events took place.  And we received 336 completed questionnaires.

The three CCG Boards will consider all of the feedback in the consultation report when they make their decision about whether or not to accept the proposals for local stroke services.

You can find the Public Consultation Report here.

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, endtoend 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.
