What we do

We support patients who have had a stroke or ‘mini stroke’ (transient ischaemic attack).

A stroke is a serious, life-threatening medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and urgent treatment is essential because the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is likely to happen.

A transient ischaemic attack (TIA) occurs when the supply of blood to the brain is temporarily interrupted, causing a ‘mini-stroke’ often lasting between 30 minutes and several hours. TIAs should be treated seriously as they are often a warning sign that you are at risk of having a full stroke in the near future.

Our services include:


Acute stroke services are based at the Royal Sussex County and Princess Royal Hospital.

Specialist inpatient rehabilitation takes place at the Sussex Rehabilitation Centre at PRH when necessary. However, our aim is to get people back to their own homes for rehabilitation whenever possible, supported by the early supported discharge or community neuro-rehabilitation teams.
