Strokes

A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is interrupted by a blockage in the blood supply or when there is a haemorrhage due to a burst blood vessel.

If a patient has suffered or is suffering a stroke, they may experience weakness or paralysis in an arm and or leg, difficulty speaking, lost vision in part of the visual field or complain of numbness and / or tingling down one side of the body. It is imperative to seek urgent medical advice if any of these events occur.

Make An Appointment

To ask a question, make an enquiry or book an appointment, contact our friendly and specialist team that are available between Monday – Friday 8am – 6pm. Our Stroke Unit team have a dedicated and caring approach and will seek to find you the earliest appointment possible with the correct specialist for your needs.

 If you are self-paying you don’t need a referral from your GP. You can simply refer yourself and book an appointment.

If you have medical insurance (e.g. Bupa, Axa PPP, Aviva), you will need to contact your insurer to get authorisation for any treatment and, in most cases, you will require a referral letter from your GP.

If you do not have a GP, then we have an in-house private GP practice that you can use. Alternatively we can suggest the most appropriate course of action for you to take, given your location and individual circumstance.

Stroke

A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is interrupted by a blockage in the blood supply or when there is a haemorrhage due to a burst blood vessel.

If a patient has suffered or is suffering a stroke, they may experience weakness or paralysis in an arm and or leg, difficulty speaking, lost vision in part of the visual field or complain of numbness and / or tingling down one side of the body. It is imperative to seek urgent medical advice if any of these events occur.

In patients who have already suffered a stroke, there are treatments now available (thrombolysis) which, if given quickly enough, may prevent further damage. Following emergency treatment to prevent further damage, rehabilitation is key.

The Stroke Unit is a specialised unit committed to providing the most effective and successful forms of treatments to rehabilitate patients. Treatment is patient-specific but our range of services are uniquely housed under one roof, making the entire process more comfortable for patients.

For more information about care and rehabilitation at The Stroke Unit contact us via stroke@hje.org.uk or call 020 7806 4075.
