PERFORMANCE: Just 52.4 per cent of stroke patients treated in the area covered by NHS Gloucestershire spend 90 per cent of their time on a dedicated stroke unit against a target of 80 per cent.

Only 26.4 per cent of stroke patients who suffer a transient ischemic attack are assessed and treated within 24 hours against a target of 60 per cent.

A report to December’s board said there were recovery action plans in place which included direct admission into stroke units at both sites run by Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
