New Stroke Unit and GOAM moves Summer 2012

People walking in corridors at GRH


Care for Stroke and TIA patients will be centralised at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital (GRH) from 26th June 2012. Key specialist staff there will provide clot-busting thrombolysis treatment for hyper-acute (seriously unwell) patients following the onset of symptoms and will also support an improved service for patients who suffer transient ischaemic attacks (TIA's).

Our General and Old Age Medicine (GOAM) services will remain on both sites, but the distribution between the two hospitals will change with a strengthening of the service and additional GOAM beds at Cheltenham (CGH).

Read all about the changes in our leaflet, which also includes maps of both hospitals and useful telephone numbers.
