Barnet stroke support service

Service overview

Our stroke support services help people in their recovery following a stroke to lead independent lives and get the best possible health outcomes. Good information and support after stroke, and review at six months, have been shown to be key in reducing the potential for a second stroke. 

Patients will be supported through three different services:

Stoke navigator service - The stroke navigator service provides specialised knowledge, signposting and support that stroke survivors need upon discharge from hospital. This service is the single point of contact for stroke survivors to access different services and can provide personaised support suited to each patient.

Communication support service - Stroke survivors affected by aphasia and other cognitive communication impairments can be left feeling isolated and further inhibited in their rehabilitation. The service offers support with re-learning communication skills through attendance at small groups and individual sessions.

Stroke review service - The stroke review service provides a monitoring and review function for stroke survivors six months after the person has suffered a stroke, received treatment, and been discharged home.

This service is for:

  • Stroke survivors 18 years and over and their carers

 Who can refer:

  • Carers
  • Healthcare professionals
  • Patients can self refer 

Home visits are available.
