​If you think you are having a stroke dial 999 immediately.

Our Stroke Service ensures immediate and ongoing treatment is available to people who suffer from a stroke.  Telestroke enables experienced stroke specialists to diagnose and provide advice about the treatment of stroke whichever hospital you attend across Lancashire.  Thrombolysis (clot busting) treatment is available, and our emergency TIA (mini-stroke) clinic and dedicated stroke ward at Royal Preston Hospital, together with stroke rehabilitation service at Chorley and South Ribble Hospital, ensures that if you have a stroke you will receive the right treatment as quickly as possible, and ongoing support to enable you to regain your independence and good health when you recover.

The  stroke team includes specialist consultants and clinical nurse specialists, who work with physiotherapists and occupational therapists in stroke rehabilitation.
