Current and former patients are being asked to help shape the future of Humber-based stroke, neurology and complex rehabilitation hospital services.
They are encouraged to come along to patient focus groups being held in Hull and Scunthorpe in March to share their experiences of using stroke, neurology or complex rehabilitation services in the Humber region.
- The Hull patient focus group is being held at Hull Truck Theatre, Ferensway, Hull, HU2 8LB on Wednesday, 6th March 2019 (12pm-2pm). To attend this event, please register here

A patient focus group event covering stroke, neurology and complex rehabilitation hospital services was held at the Courtyard in Goole on Friday, 15th February (2pm-4pm).
You must register online if you wish to attend the Hull or Scunthorpe patient focus groups.
The events will also feature short presentations from local doctors working in hospital-based stroke, neurology or complex rehabilitation services, in which they will explain some of the issues they are finding challenging within their services.
The patient focus group events are part of a series of engagement events relating to the Humber Acute Services Review, which is looking at a number of hospital services at the five hospitals in the Humber area – Scunthorpe General Hospital, Grimsby’s Diana Princess of Wales Hospital, Hull Royal Infirmary, Castle Hill Hospital in Cottingham and Goole and District Hospital.
Cardiology and critical care-themed patient focus groups were held in Grimsby and Willerby in January.
