Details of the Response

The number of patients admitted to St Peters’ Hyperacute Stroke Unit each month for the latest 12 month period for which such data is available

The Trust does not hold this data before 7 December 2018. Hyperacute Stroke Unit (HASU) patients would have been admitted to a general ward originally. The Trust did not record them separately.

The Trust opened the HASU in December 2018 when data was first recorded.

  • 38 Confirmed Stroke Patients admitted to HASU (07 Dec 2018 – 06 Jan 2019)
  • 38 Confirmed Stroke Patients admitted to HASU (07 Jan 2019 – 28 Jan 2019)

 

Subsequent Request

What I wish to know is how many stoke patients has St Peters treated each month for the latest 12 month period for which such data is available.

This data was collected before when the stroke review was underway because figures were quoted as part of the review. I cannot believe they have not been collected since the review decision since they will have been (and will still be) collected as part of monitoring the review decision.
