About our services

As well as running a 26-bedded inpatient acute stroke unit (with 4 hyperacute beds for new admissions including those patients thrombolysed for acute stroke), we run a daily TIA clinic at the RUH. We now operate a 7-day service for TIA, though high risk patients only are seen at the weekend and on bank holidays. Please refer using the guidance above.
