About the Stroke Unit

The acute stroke unit is based on C level of the Moorgate Wing at Rotherham Hospital.

We are part of the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Clinical Stroke Network.

We provide a range of stroke services, including rehabilitation and early supported discharge services.

We also provide a daily clinic for people presenting acutely with transient ischaemic attack (TIA).

On the Unit, the nursing and therapy teams work together throughout a patient's stay. Planning for discharge will start before the patient has recovered fully to enable rehabilitation goals and referrals to be made and for the therapy team to work closely with the patient.

What to bring

Patients’ families or carers should bring patients:

  • Toiletries
  • Appropriate nightwear
  • Some day clothes to aid recovery as part of the rehabilitation plan.

Information for visitors

Following your stroke patients from Rotherham are cared for at the specialist centre (hyper acute stroke unit) at either Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield or Doncaster Royal Infirmary. Find out more about when and where stroke patients receive care.

Visiting times for Rotherham Hospital are available at the bottom of this page.

Visiting is possible outside of these hours, but please check with the Nurse in charge of the ward, as there are protected meal times and times when clinical reviews are being undertaken.
