"stroke unit is poor in comparison to north tees."

About: The James Cook University Hospital

Anything else?

No continuity of care. Not enough one on one time with patients. Progress after strokes on north tees ward was much quicker than in James cook and I feel this directly links to the standard of care. Patients moved too often, different nurses each day, no chairs for patients, nobody to discuss progress with. Not good enough
