NSW Health moves ahead with statewide telestroke service

NSW Health has begun the roll-out of the $21.7 million telestroke service it announced last year, promising to expand the service to up to 23 sites across the state over the next three years.

The service has been piloted since 2017 at Hunter New England, Central Coast and Mid North Coast local health districts, connecting local clinicians with specialist neurologists from Sydney’s Prince of Wales Hospital.

I hope this can expand to other states.
