Service available in:

Our Early Supported Discharge (ESD) Service provides ongoing therapy to patients who are discharged from an acute stroke ward following a stroke, who would benefit from further rehabilitation at home or within their place of residence and either live in St Helens or are registered with a St Helens GP.

Referrals are only accepted from an acute stroke unit for patients who have been admitted with a stroke. The ESD team is based at St Helens Hospital and will work with patients for up to six months in their own homes to assist a seamless discharge from hospital. Patients may then be referred on to other community services if there are still identified treatment goals.

You can contact the team directly for advice on 01744 646 851.
