The NHS Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) want to improve NHS stroke services and are looking at how these services are currently provided across the area, especially but not exclusively during the hyper-acute phase (the first 72 hours). They are inviting people living in Kent and Medway who have experience of stroke or mini stroke – either directly or through a family member or friend – to express an interest in being involved in one of a series of events, known as deliberative events, to be held in Ashford and Maidstone in November 2015.
Deliberative events are designed so that participants can look at an issue in more detail than would be possible in a public event or focus group. This will, therefore, involve a full day of your time and some preparation before the event. You will receive remuneration for your participation.
Participants will be asked to:
- review the evidence gathered to date around stroke services
- hear from and ask questions of specialists in the field
- share their views and make recommendations based on what they’ve heard
If you’d be interested in taking part please click on the link below and answer a few questions by 12th October. We will contact you later in October with an update.
If you have any queries or need any further information please contact Rebecca McClymont at the Commissioning Support Unit CSU (03000 424348 or [email protected])
