Residents are encouraged to have their say on plans to improve stroke rehabilitation services in the community before the consultation ends on April 1.
GPs are asking people for their views on the plans, which aim to change the way patients recover.
Dr Sarah Heyes, clinical director for stroke at Redbridge Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), said: “Advances in stroke care have given people faster access to specialist doctors and clot-busting drugs, which saves hundreds of lives each year and reduces the after-effects of a stroke for many patients.
“This means more people than ever before have a chance to make a good recovery and go on to lead a full life, so it’s vital that our rehabilitation services are set up in the best way to help people do this.
“We’ve come up with a proposal we think will do this, so now we’d like people in Redbridge to let us know their views.”
