Stroke due to brain haemorrhage clinic

Our team runs a monthly multi-disciplinary brain haemorrhage specialist clinic that integrates care with current research.

On the first visit, you will meet one of the neurologists and/or our nurse specialist. They will discuss the diagnosis, help decide what your needs are, and check that you have had the correct tests and treatment. Subsequent follow-up visits can be planned after the initial consultation.

We very much encourage you to bring your partner and/or close family to the consultation, and recommend that you bring a list of your medication as well as any questions you might like to ask.

 

Clinical research opportunities

Patients will be given the opportunity to take part in clinical research.

Participation in research is completely voluntary and will not affect patient care. We run a variety of research studies, including LINCHPIN and RESTART, and you can find out more about them via our webpage:
