ON: My name is Ossie Newell ...
I am a stroke survivor and conqueror
I now campaign to improve stroke care
and in this film I want to explore
where there are gaps in the care pathway.
SS: The biggest problem I think for us is joining up services
and making that pathway seamless for people
so that they can move through at the right pace for them
and get the right services at the right time.
JDG: What we need to make sure that we do, is take our resources
and really target in and focus on those communities
who really need help
in terms of changing those life style behaviours.
DG: We are unique here in Nottingham that we have
rehabilitation still happening within an acute Trust.
So our patients can come directly to us,
stay with us for the hyper-acute stage, which is three days
and then move on to one of our 3 wards
which provide sub-acute and early rehabillitation.
ON: Around the country, people still fall through the gaps
and end up on a general medical ward after the stroke.
RS: For me, rehabilitation starts when a patient comes into the ward
and is admitted, and it's essential
that we establish from day one what somebody's potential is.
PN: When I first came home from hospital,
I suddenly realised that
I'd have to ask my wife and everybody else,
to help me to do things
and there was a big clash in my head
about who I was and the new person I was now.
JP: The Early Support Discharge Team is
a multi disciplinary team based in the community,
that helps facilitate earlier discharge
for patients from hospital
that helps support them through that transfer of care
from hospital to home.
The idea is that we provide very specific rehabilitation for people
in their own homes that's meaningful to them.
ON: Once a patient is back home,
it's not just their healthcare needs
that have to be met,
but social care needs as well.
WO1: After I came out of hospital
there was nothing,
if I hadn't got my family,
then I wouldn't have had anything at all.
WO2: Because I've got a quite active brain,
I bought a Wii,
so I'm into tenpin bowling and baseball!
MW: It's important that we do research
that's meaningful to patients,
meaningful to their life
and the results that we will have from the research
will be provided to the commissioners
so that they can then commission that research.
ON: I am passionate
about achieving a complete pathway of care
for stroke patients,
not just for me ...
... but for the hundreds of thousands
of people and their families
who are living everyday
with the consequences of stroke.
