Commended Stroke Services at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust

12 Jul 2012 09:15:24

Services for stroke patients in Rotherham have been commended by the Yorkshire and the Humber’s Strategic Health Authority (SHA). 

The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust’s (TRFT) Stroke Services have been awarded accreditation for the provision of hyper-acute stroke services at Level 2, which includes emergency acute stroke care and stroke thrombolysis or clot-busting services, plus a full range of rehabilitation services both in hospital and in the community.  

The accreditation recognises the Trust’s ability to demonstrate robust services for stroke patients in Rotherham in terms of quality and its capacity to provide a full range of services to meet the needs of stroke patients and their families.  

The Trust’s team successfully met all the standards and recommendations indicated by the SHA and is, so far, one of only three NHS organisations in the region to receive this level of accreditation.  

Upon notifying the Trust of its achievement, David Thompson, Deputy Chief Nurse of the NHS North of England, commented: “It was greatly reassuring to see such dedication within the team and a willingness to continue to improve stroke services for the patients of Rotherham. Well done on your progress.” 

Brian James, Chief Executive at TRFT, commented: “I am delighted to be informed that our stroke services have achieved level 2, hyper-acute accreditation.  

“This achievement presents a tremendous accolade for the staff involved and to whom I would wish to extend my appreciation and congratulations; it demonstrates great commitment to continuously improving the quality of services that we offer to the people of Rotherham. I would like to pass on my thanks to all involved in gaining this accreditation” 

The Yorkshire and Humber SHA will continue to assess the service via commissioning organisations and peer reviews to ensure services provided for stroke patients at TRFT continue to be of the highest quality.
