STRUCTURE: Leeds General Infirmary, part of Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, is planning to open a hyper acute stroke unit.
The area is seeking to improve the amount of relevant patients who are looked after on dedicated units and has recently opened a stroke unit. The more advanced unit for severe patients will require more investment.
Medical director Peter Belfield said: “The reason we have brought this to the board is to further improve care for patients.”
