YORK Hospital is celebrating after its stroke care service won recognition as a centre of excellence from the Strategic Health Authority for Yorkshire and The Humber.
The award comes after the hospital invested heavily in more nurses, therapists and doctors. It now provides specialist stroke care 24 hours a day, seven days a week with an experienced senior nurse on duty day and night and a specialist stroke consultant visiting the ward seven days a week.
It also holds a minor stroke clinic seven days a week and a round-the-clock thrombolysis service offering clot busting treatment, as well as providing a specialist stroke rehabilitation unit.
