There's fantastic news for the CHFT stroke team!
After a great deal of hard work from all members of the multidisciplinary team the stroke team have managed to improve their SSNAP score (Sentinel Stroke National Audit Programme) from a D to a B; which puts us second in the Yorks and Humber region after Scunthorpe General Hospital.
The turnaround has been due to introducing new ways of working to make the service better for our patients provided by tremendous team spirit on the unit.
These changes in practice include:
Stroke Clinical Lead Dr Pratap Rana said: “Our nurses are working round the clock delivering thrombolysis and are under immense pressure and cope very well. This is much better, streamlined service for our patients and their families and we are delighted to see this recognised in our new care rating in the National Audit.”
