Consultation on stroke rehabilitation now open
10 February 2016

Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge (BHR) Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are launching a consultation on proposed changes to local stroke rehabilitation services. The 12-week consultation runs until 5pm on Friday, 1 April 2016.

The local population is growing and changing and local people need a stroke rehabilitation system that will provide good quality care for people now and can also care for more people in years to come. To do this, NHS staff think they need to make some changes.

They want to make stroke rehabilitation services more joined up with each other and focused on what individual people need, regardless of where they live. They believe doing this would mean people receive specialist care, tailored to their needs, which would help them to recover better and more quickly.

The NHS in London has transformed its system of hospital stroke care by introducing a centralised model of care. This has saved hundreds of extra lives each year and hugely improved people’s chances of rapid and lasting recovery following a stroke. Now, the priority is getting the next step – rehabilitation – right, so that people recover well and live the fullest life possible.

Redbridge CCG want to know what you think about their proposals – whether you agree or disagree, and if there is anything else you want them to consider. Please do take a look at the consultation document and questionnaire, which is on their website at

If you have any further questions or would like to arrange for someone to come and talk to your group about the proposals, please contact or call .
