How to access the service

Referrals are taken from the acute stroke unit at Royal Blackburn Teaching Hospital, the stroke rehabilitation ward at Pendle Community Hospital, other health professionals, social services and self-referrals.

We see patients in their own home, residential/nursing homes and residential rehabilitation settings.  We see patients from 1-12 weeks and we are able to support patients for early supported discharge.
