Welcome to the East Staffordshire Early Supported Discharge Community Stroke Team.

More about us

The Early Supported Discharge Community Stroke Team offers specialist stroke rehabilitation and nurse support for adults with a new diagnosis of stroke who are registered with an East Staffordshire GP.

The Community Stroke Team is an interdisciplinary team of healthcare professionals made up of:

  • Specialist Stroke Occupational Therapists
  • Specialist Stroke Physiotherapists
  • Specialist Stroke Nurses
  • Integrated Support Workers

The team works collaboratively to ensure a coordinated service for those affected by stroke living in the community. We attend daily board rounds at Queens Hospital – Burton and also have links with University Hospital of North Staffordshire, Royal Derby Hospital and Community Hospitals.

We work closely with other services such as rapid response, community therapies,  and local care agencies.

I was treated with great care and understanding. The care I received was second to none; everyone was so lovely.
