The Stroke therapy department at St George’s Hospital is based within the Atkinson Morley Regional Neurosciences Centre. The Hyperacute Stroke (HASU) therapy team specialises in the assessment and treatment of stroke patients from across South West London.

The Acute Stroke therapy team specialises in the treatment of local St George’s Stroke patients. If you are assessed on the Hyperacute Stroke Unit and do not live locally to St George’s you will be transferred to an Acute Stroke Unit (ASU) closer to your home to continue your rehabilitation. This transfer to the ASU typically happens within 72 hours of admission.

The multi disciplinary team will endeavour to organise a family meeting for all Stroke patients. The time frame for this may vary slightly depending on the patient’s needs. This is an opportunity to discuss the patient’s progress and on-going plans such as where the patient may go to next.

The Sentinel Stroke National Audit Programme (SSNAP) is a programme of work which aims to improve the quality of stroke care by auditing stroke services against evidence based standards nationally. All Stroke patients admitted to the St George’s Stroke Service will have data relating to key performance targets entered into the SSNAP data set by the SSNAP co-ordinator.
