Stroke patients asked for feedback

Monday 2nd March 2015

ANYONE who has been treated for a stroke in the  last two years at Maidstone or Tunbridge Wells Hospital could help to improve the service for future patients.

Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells Hospital NHS Trust, which manages Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells Hospitals, wants to speak to former patients about their experiences in a bid to ensure all patients have access to dedicated stroke teams and treatment 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Very few hospitals currently meet this standard nationally.

Former patients can share their thoughts and experiences at an event at Maidstone Football Club, James Whatman Way, Maidstone from 10am to noon on March 13. Lunch will be provided and disabled access is available at all venues. To book a place, email or call Freephone 0808 801 0102.

Anyone who is unable to attend can still share their thoughts by calling the Freephone number or emailing
