To shape the future of stroke services, we need local people to join us.
Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership’s Integrated Stroke Delivery Network have teamed up with Stroke Association to get your views to shape stroke services across the region.
The network is looking to recruit patient and carer representatives who have had a stroke – or experience of caring for someone who’s had a stroke.
The Stroke patient and carer representative group will help to inform and shape stroke services now and in the future. The NHS has identified stroke care and treatment as a priority, we aim to work with partners to help prevent stroke, improve diagnosis, and access to treatment.
This is an opportunity to ensure the views of people with lived experience of stroke are taken into account in the planning, delivery, and evaluation of the work of the stroke network. The Humber and North Yorkshire (OUR) landscape is very varied, so we are keen to have members who represent that, from the rural areas, coast, towns, and cities.
We want to have a group who represent all walks of life including those who traditionally may be less well represented.
The Stroke patient and carer representative group aims to meet every other month remotely, with hopes to plan an annual face to face event.
Joining the representative group is voluntary. However, you may claim travel expenses incurred whilst carrying out your role as a patient/carer representative.
There is also the opportunity to become the chair or vice-chair of the group and, with support from the stroke network team in this role, you will be invited to the monthly network steering group meetings, where representatives from the whole stroke network come together.
