All Sheffield patients will be offered a follow up appointment 6 weeks after their discharge from the hospital or Stroke Pathway Assessment and Rehabilitation centre.
Most of these follow up appointments will be in an outpatient clinic setting with either the Consultant in charge of your care or the Consultant Stroke Nurse.
Where it is difficult for you to attend an outpatient appointment, arrangements will be made for a review in your own home by one of our community Stroke Nurse Specialists.
If it is possible a telephone review may be offered.
All patients will also be offered a 6 month post discharge review. The stroke service will contact you close to this time to arrange the review. This review will either be via telephone or through a face to face interview with one of our community Stroke Nurse Specialists
