Our inpatient service includes a dedicated four bed acute stroke unit and multidisciplinary team of nurses and allied health professionals. A full range of neurological subspecialties is represented within the department. A conjoint meeting with the Departments of Neuroradiology and Neurosurgery serves as a medium to facilitate diagnosis and management.
