Friends of Stroke Unit
Bespak’s Charity of the Year for 2016/17 is Friends of the Stroke Unit, formed in 2005 by Mr Paul Brandon in 2005, who had his stroke that year and was also elected Borough Mayor. He spent the year raising funds to create a day room within the unit and has served on the management committee ever since, with the aim of improving facilities on the West Raynham Ward, Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn for the benefit of patients, their families and staff.
Stroke is devastating and has no consideration for age, gender or ethnic origin, with this in mind the committee are dedicated to establishing a TIA Clinic on West Raynham Ward helping those suffering mini strokes. The Rapid access TIA clinic now runs daily and patients at risk can be seen and treated within 24hours.
