Urgent Stroke Care Services Under Review

Urgent Stroke Care services within Kent and Medway have been under review since late 2014 and the latest step in the process is looking at sites of where those services should be delivered from. The proposals recommend creating three hyper acute stroke units in Kent and Medway from a shortlist of sites, and although Darent Valley Hospital has been shortlisted, if the hospital is not chosen as one of the sites it does mean that Bexley residents would have to travel to Maidstone for their nearest urgent stroke care centre.

You can read about the full proposals in their consultation document and the consultation runs until midnight on Friday 13th April 2018.

There is also an event to hear more on the proposals in Bexley taking place on Monday 19th March from 2pm to 4pm at Geddes Place United Reformed Church, Bexleyheath DA6 7DJ - open to everyone, just turn up!
