Improving hospital stroke care

Share your views about creating a Comprehensive Stroke Centre at Aintree University Hospital


A stroke is a life-threatening condition that happens when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off by a blood clot or bleeding from a blood vessel. Strokes are a medical emergency and urgent treatment is essential. The sooner you are treated, the better your chance of recovery.

The term ‘hyper-acute’ means the hospital care provided in the 72-hours immediately after a stroke happens. After this, you move to either acute stroke care or rehabilitation in hospital, or go home to continue your recovery.

The NHS in Knowsley, Liverpool, South Sefton, Southport & Formby and West Lancashire has been looking at how it can improve local hyper-acute stroke care.

Between 22 November 2021 and 14 February 2022, we are holding a public consultation about proposals for a Comprehensive Stroke Centre at Aintree University Hospital, which would bring together the hyper-acute care currently provided at Aintree, the Royal Liverpool, and Southport hospitals.

We would encourage you to read the consultation booklet before completing the survey, you can find this here
