Stroke Services


March 2015 saw the culmination of a comprehensive redesign of stroke services at Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board, incorporating:

  • The creation of a new community based rehabilitation service allowing early supported discharge for stroke patients.
  • The centralisation of longer term inpatient stroke rehabilitation services at Ysbyty Cwm Rhondda.
  • The centralisation of hyper-acute, acute stroke and early stroke rehabilitation services at Prince Charles Hospital.
  •  A Combined Stroke Unit in Ward 5 of Princess of Wales hospital attending to hyperacute stroke, acute stroke and stroke rehabilitation patients.
  • Rapid Access TIA service available at Princess of Wales hospital
  • 24/7 Emergency Department receiving hyper acute stroke and providing stroke thrombolysis.

This was driven by the need to improve the quality of services in line with local and ever more challenging national clinical standards

Who is it for?

This service is predominantly for patients who reside in the Cwm Taf Morgannwg area, however some patients from Powys and Aneurin Bevan Health Board areas also receive stroke care at Prince Charles Hospital.
