Stroke services

Both Acute and Hyper acute inpatient services are provided at Royal Derby Hospital and Queen's Hospital Burton. The clinical teams work closely with the emergency departments to ensure all stroke and potential stroke patients are assessed by a stroke specialist as soon as they arrive in hospital. Each site has dedicated stroke wards.

Stroke Rehabilitation is offered on both sites, and Royal Derby Hospital has a dedicated ward (312) to offer inpatient rehabilitation for patients. 

Each site has designated Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) clinics to diagnose and assess patients.

You will spend most of the day at the hospital and will be seen by a specialist nurse and doctor. You will have a number of tests and will know the results of most of these tests before you go home.

It can be a long day so we recommend you bring something to read, drink and eat. You are welcome to bring someone with you.

You are not allowed to drive for one month following a TIA.
