The future of stroke services in West Yorkshire 

Across West Yorkshire and Harrogate, health and care services are working together to ensure stroke services are fit for the future.

Before decisions are made, Healthwatch Bradford and District have been asked to find out what people think about the services that are currently provided and what would be important to them now and in the future should they have a stroke, or care for someone who has.

This covers the whole stroke pathway from prevention, the first 72 hrs of care, through to rehabilitation and community support.

In Bradford and Airedale, previous engagement was carried out when changes were made to local stroke services in 2015/16. So to avoid asking people the same questions again, we're building on the engagement that's already taken place. You can read about the previous engagement here. 

Healthwatch have been doing some in-depth interviews with people who've had recent experience of stroke.  We've been talking with patients and carers identified through liaison with stroke rehabilitation wards at local hospitals and community stroke services. This work will contribute to the overall report for West Yorkshire and help shape the future of services across the region. 

People in the Bradford District and Airedale can also share their views on the future of regional stroke services by taking part in the online survey -

You can also contact the Healthwatch team on 01535 665 258 if you need any support completing the survey or have any questions.
