This purpose-built Stroke Care Unit (SCU) is designed to centralise ECR services and enable 24-hour intervention, improve links to departments like Emergency and Radiology, increase bed capacity, and introduce teaching, training and research facilities that support patient care and staff development.

Staff and patients alike are overwhelmingly positive about the impact of a purpose-built facility designed to improve patient care and outcomes. Co-locating key services in the unit’s core removes the need to shuttle patients to appointments in different departments, thereby increasing valuable recovery time.
