If you have suffered an acute stroke, you will be cared for at a hyper acute stroke unit such as King's College Hospital. Patients who come to accident and emergency, or have an acute stroke while they are in hospital will be transferred to a hyper acute stroke unit.
We work closely with colleagues across London to ensure that patients can be looked after in a hospital closer to their home for the remainder of their care. We will transfer patients back to Mark Ward around 48-72 hours after admission to a hyper-acute stroke unit.
Our stroke service cares for patients at our rehabilitation stroke unit on Mark Ward.
