Future acute stroke services in Kent and Medway: A South East Clinical Senate review of the STP’s preferred option for stroke service configuration.

The South East Clinical Senate has previously undertaken a number of independent clinical reviews of stroke care for Kent, Surrey and Sussex, and specifically for Kent and Medway it previously was
invited to review the draft case for change, and more recently the pre-consultation business case before it went to public consultation.
We were delighted to then be asked to provide this independent clinical review of the draft decision making business case, specifically the preferred option within it for three hyperacute and acute stroke units for Kent and Medway.
The stroke programme board, clinical reference group, commissioners, providers and other stakeholders have undertaken a very thorough, measured and collaborative approach to developing their proposals for future stroke care, with the goal of providing the highest quality care for stroke patients in the future, and this is reflected in the draft decision making business case, that was shared with us for review.
