Stroke 'buddies' to improve rehabilitation

  • Comment

Wolverhampton City PCT is to train 10 former stroke patients to act as “buddies” for new patients who are reluctant to take part in a rehabilitation programme after leaving hospital.

Under the initiative, which gets underway later this year, people who have previously had a stroke and are coping well with their new way of life, will visit patients at home, listen to concerns and encourage them towards a more positive outlook. 

The PCT has received £8,800 from the NHS West Midlands Regional Innovation Fund to develop the stroke buddies project.
