Helen Welcomes Stroke Service Proposals

 

Commenting on the announcement of Maidstone Hospital as a Preferred option for new stroke services in Kent, Helen Grant MP for Maidstone and the Weald said:

'I am delighted that Maidstone Hospital has been selected as a preferred option for one of Kent's new Hyper Acute Stroke Units.

As the best provider of stroke care in Kent; the excellent leadership and clinical teams at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust are superbly placed to make a success of this multimillion pound new service and I am confident they will deliver improved outcomes for stroke patients across our County.

I am delighted that such an outstanding new service will be on the doorstep of many of my constituents, should they require it, and I look forward to continuing to work closely with the Trust as they develop the new unit in the months ahead.'
