Stroke care improved at Lancs and Cumbria21st September 2011
A new telestroke service has gone live across Lancashire and Cumbria.
The large scale service will allow consultants to assess patients for thrombolysis treatment by video-link with 15 consultants having been given a laptop in their own home that links to a specially designed ‘telecart’ positioned at the patient’s bedside in one of the eight hospitals in the stroke network. The telecart carries video-conferencing technology and gives consultants access to the national Image Exchange Portal allowing them to view CT scans and other medical images as well as medical records.
