"Grateful for all the care from the team"

About: Nottingham West / Community stroke team

(as a service user),

I had a stroke in January and after eight days in hospital was able to come home. Happily my husband is fit and well and able to help me where I needed help including putting in a second handrail.

The Community Stroke Team arrived on the next day and my treatment which was first class went on from there. I was seen three times a week by various members of the Team including Emma, Jasmine, Jan and Gapele. They were all very kind and caring and very professional. Luckily for me I was ready for discharge at the time of the Corona Virus. I am now almost 100% recovered, able to walk 10,000 steps each day! I am very grateful for all the care from the Community Stroke Team.

Many thanks for taking the time to feedback on your experience. This is fantastic feedback and I will make sure that the team see this, especially those staff whom you have mentioned.

It is really important to us that we hear from patients/carers/family to inform us of how we are doing, in order to shape the delivery of services to provide the best care possible.

I an very pleased that you felt your experience was first class and that the team were able to help you fully recover from your stroke. Congratulations on your achievement of 10,000 steps a day, that is an excellent goal and we are very proud to have had a part in helping you achieve it.

We wish all the best for the future.

Thank you so much.
