NHS Ipswich and East Suffolk and West Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Groups are looking to commission a stroke early supported discharge (ESD) service across the Ipswich, East Suffolk (minus Waveney) and West Suffolk localities.

This service has been designed to support people after stroke, transferring care from an inpatient environment to a primary care setting to continue rehabilitation at the same level of intensity and expertise that they would have received in the inpatient setting. This service will maximise rehabilitation potential for stroke survivors and lessen long term disability. A multi-disciplinary approach will ensure rehabilitation needs are met.

• to ensure a whole system approach that raises standards across the stroke pathway aligned with National and local strategy and guidelines;

• to ensure the stroke survivor and family/carer have access to support, advice, advocacy and information throughout the care pathway and beyond;

• to ensure rehabilitation is delivered with a person-centred, goal planning approach;

• to achieve maximum potential for independence in all aspects of the stroke survivors and their family/carer’s lifestyle while, acquiring the skills to adapt to new situations;

• to deliver a five days a week ESD service as standard, with 7-day working a future development;

• to reduce premature admission into long term care;

• to enable the stroke survivor to reach and maintain their optimum potential in their physical, psychological and social functional abilities.

• to integrate health, social and voluntary organisations, ensuring a high-quality pathway from transfer from the acute setting through discharge home and beyond.
