The Thames Valley Clinical Senate is looking for patients/carers to attend and contribute to a Thrombectomy Stakeholder Event.

The event will take place on Friday 15th June 2018, from 09.30 to 1.00pm at The Oxford Belfry, Milton Common, Nr Thame, OX9 2JW

Organisers would like to hear from individuals who have suffered a stroke or who are caring for someone who has suffered a stroke, who can take part in and inform the discussions at this event.

It is essential that applicants live within the Thames Valley Clinical Senate area, which covers Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

*A stroke occurs when an artery (blood vessel) is blocked by a blood clot, cutting off blood flow to part of the brain and causing long lasting damage if not removed. The procedure to remove these blood clots using a catheter (thin tube) is called Thrombectomy.  Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is in the process of developing a 24/7 thrombectomy service covering the Thames Valley, Swindon, Milton Keynes and Northamptonshire. This service is being designed to optimise stroke patients’ pathway to this lifesaving treatment.

Deadline for applications: midday Friday 8th June 2017
