Have your say on stroke services before the consultation ends

4 April 2018

The Kent and Medway urgent stroke services review team is calling on local people and staff to ensure they respond to the current stroke services consultation by midnight on 20 April 2018.

There are just two weeks left to have your say on the future of urgent stroke services in Kent and Medway.

The NHS is asking for views on proposals to establish three new 24/7 hyper acute stroke units in Kent and Medway.

A public consultation has been running since 2 February 2018 but the deadline for feedback is approaching and NHS bosses are asking people to ensure they respond before it’s too late.

There are still some consultation events open to the public with spaces available, including one in Gravesend Town Hall on Monday 9 April from 7pm to 9pm.

You can find out everything you need to know about the consultation online and book a place at the Gravesend event, or other events which are planned for Folkestone, Deal, Romney Marsh, Faversham, Whitstable and Ramsgate. You can read the consultation document, come to a public meeting, or complete the online questionnaire to share your views. Alternatively, you can send an email to km.stroke@nhs.net, call 0300 790 6796 or send a letter, free of charge, to FREEPOST Kent and Medway NHS.

The Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups for the Kent and Medway Stroke Review has taken the decision to extend the stroke consultation by one week. The consultation will now close at midnight on Friday 20 April.
