TIA pathway is now live across the whole region

Ambulance side shot

Following the initial roll-out of the transient ischaemic attack (TIA) pathway in 2012, the Trust has now secured links at Addenbrookes Hospital to refer patients in south Cambridgeshire.

The introduction of this partnership now means that all patients suffering a low-risk TIA within the region will be able to be safely left at home and referred to the appropriate pathway. This will be via SPOC, who will arrange a referral to the nearest TIA clinic to be seen within seven days.

Patients must be left with an information leaflet and aspirin (unless contraindicated) included in the TIA packs, which are already on stations.

Please remind yourself of the Trust’s TIA referral pathway guidelines which has further information, including how to identify low-risk patients. If you have any questions please speak to your duty locality officer.
