  • Referral
  • If an individual presents any signs of a drooping face, no being able to lift their arms, slurred speech then 999 must be dialled by someone else, immediately. This is known as secondary care.
  • Rehabilitation
  • As soon as the individual enters the hospital, the doctor takes blood measurements, height and other measurements such as blood pressure. The doctor will then provide the individual with Ischemic Stroke Treatment.
  • Home Assessment
  • The patient will then stay in hospital and the doctor will make a professional referral to a neurologist. The neurologist will then assess the damage the stroke has caused and will continue to monitor the individual for any changes.
  • Follow Up
