NHS Sussex seeking your thoughts on improving hospital-based stroke services in West Sussex

The NHS is committed to ensuring that anybody who has a stroke, day or night, anywhere across West Sussex, and more widely across Sussex, has the best chances of survival and recovery with a return to living an independent fulfilling life.

NHS Sussex and University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust are proposing improvements to hospital-based stroke services that people use when they are experiencing a stroke. This consultation is focused on changes to the emergency stroke services provided in hospitals in the coastal area of West Sussex. The coastal area covers the populations of Adur, Arun, Chichester, Worthing, and south of Horsham.
