- Hyper Acute Stroke Units (HASUs) - provide the immediate response to a stroke, where the patient is stabilised and receives primary intervention. The patient's length of stay is up to 72 hours.
- Stroke Units (SUs) - provide multi-therapy rehabilitation and ongoing medical supervision following a patient's HASU stabilisation. Length of stay varies and will last until the patient is well enough for discharge from an acute inpatient setting.
- TIA services - provide rapid diagnostic assessment and access to a specialist within 24 hours for high-risk patients and within seven days for low-risk patients.
