A five-year review of urgent stroke services in Kent and Medway was led by local stroke specialists and included an extensive public consultation which ended in April 2018.
Two reports from the consultation were published in June 2018 and can be found here: https://kentandmedway.nhs.uk/stroke/about-the-stroke-consultation/ along with other reports about engagement with the public.
The reports of the public consultation were considered as part of the decision making process. In February 2019 the Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups for the Kent and Medway Review of Urgent Stroke Services gave the go-ahead to opening hyper acute stroke units at William Harvey Hospital, Darent Valley Hospital and Maidstone Hospital.
