Reshaping Stroke Services – Consultation on Monday 11th September in the Killyhevlin Hotel

Health and Social Care is currently undertaking a pre-consultation process in relation to Reshaping Stroke Services across Northern Ireland.

As part of the engagement process, Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke (NICHS) is arranging a number of public meetings on behalf of Health and Social Care.  More details about the pre-consultation and the public meetings across Northern Ireland , can be found at www.hscboard.hscni.net/stroke.

Public meetings taking place within the FODC area are as follows:

Wednesday 9 August, 2.15 pm, Conference Hall, The Tara Centre, 11 Holmview Terrace, Omagh BT79 0AH.  A presentation and a discussion about the Stroke proposals will take place after.

Monday 11 September, 6.30-8.30pm, The Lisgoole Suite, Killyhevlin Lakeside Hotel, Dublin Road, Enniskillen BT74 6RW

For more information telephone Health and Social Care on 028 9536 3054

These public meetings are part of a 13 week programme, which began in June 2017, during which Health and Social Care organisations, in partnership with stroke survivors, carers, charities and staff, have held and continue to holding a series of meetings, engagements and workshops, as part of the pre-consultation process, to listen to a wide range of views and to discuss and debate how best to enhance stroke care for patients in Northern Ireland into the future.

This is part of recommendations made in ‘Health and Wellbeing 2026: Delivering Together’ which places a high priority on improving stroke services and also ensuring that patients, service users, staff, key partners and the general public were at the heart of designing services.

It is important that as many people as possible have the chance to have their say. Click here for a flyer, developed by NICHS, to help encourage attendance and participation.
