Surrey hospital shares stroke care expertise with India

  • Comment

Specialist staff from a hospital trust in Surrey are to help set up the first ever stroke unit in India.

Stroke unit sister Usha Sagoo and clinical specialist in stroke rehabilitation, physiotherapist Michelle Green, from Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Trust, have just returned from India.

During their visit they passed on stroke care expertise at the Apollo Hospital, Ludhiana, following a visit from colleague and consultant physician Dr Bhaskar Mandal.

Dr Mandal had been asked for advice following the illness of a Sikh religious leader, His Holiness Satguru Ji, from the Punjab.

Following the week-long visit, the team have been asked to advise on setting up the first stroke rehabilitation unit in the Punjab and also the whole of India, which could be open in late autumn.
