Consultant in Stroke Medicine and Hyper Acute Stroke Medicine
The Care of the Elderly & Stroke Department at Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, in collaboration with Doncaster & Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, is seeking to appoint a Consultant Physician in Stroke Medicine and Hyper Acute Stroke Medicine (HASU).
This joint post will support the Hyper Acute Stroke Unit (HASU) at the Doncaster Royal Infirmary on a rotational basis, including Stroke thrombolysis cover and acute TIA assessments; and Acute (ASU) and Rehabilitation Stroke Unit work and the TIA clinics at Barnsley Trust, where this post is based.
Stroke is identified as a priority area for the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System, which is recognised nationally as a leading Integrated Care System.
South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw (SYB) are embarking on the development of a new model of hyper acute stroke care. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of the new team to deliver the SYB regional model to provide high quality stroke care for patients. To deliver improved outcomes and best practice care, the new model includes the development of a Managed Clinical Network for Stroke across South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw.
The network will have an operational focus and look across the whole pathway. It will provide an opportunity for clinicians to network with peers, share best practice and be part of an operational delivery network to implement the new model of hyper acute stroke care and collaboratively lead improvements in all aspects of stroke care.
The new model consolidates hyper acute stroke care in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw at Doncaster Royal Infirmary and Sheffield Teaching Hospital. Chesterfield hospital will continue to provide hyper acute stroke care and some patients (predominantly those living in Barnsley) will also receive hyper acute care in Pinderfields hospital in Wakefield.
In addition to the consolidation hyper acute stroke care South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw are committed to ensuring high quality acute stroke and TIA care, inpatient rehabilitation, early supported discharge and community rehabilitation and the delivery of this through a network approach that values every aspect of the stroke pathway. The model also includes the gradual development of Thrombectomy services.
Finally, the model is also clear that there is an ongoing need to continue to focus on prevention, primary and secondary prevention and it is anticipated that the network will provide a platform for collaboration around this and linkages to other work streams in the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Intergrated Care System to maximise the potential to improve outcomes through this across the region
