Issue details

Kent and Medway Hyper Acute and Acute Stroke Services Review


This report will set out details of an analysis of the preferred option announced by the Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups (JCCCG) for the location of three new specialist Hyper Acute Stroke Units (HASUs) in Kent and Medway. The report will seek authority for the Chief Legal Officer to apply for a Judicial Review of any decision by the Joint Committee of Clinical Commissioning Groups which excludes Medway Hospital as a site for a Kent and Medway Hyper acute stroke unit.


Access to Information

The report together with any other documents being considered (unless they contain exempt information) will be available for inspection 5 clear days before the decision is taken by the Cabinet. Copies are available on the Council's website or requested from Democratic Services Medway Council, Gun Wharf, Dock Road, Chatham, Kent, ME4 4TR or email If you wish to submit information to the Cabinet about the item please also contact Democratic Services. 


It is noted that the Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements)(Meetings and Access to Information)(England) Regulations 2012 requires 28 clear days’ notice of the intention to make a key decision.


On this occasion it has not been practicable to provide 28 clear days’ notice and therefore Section 10 (General Exception) of the above regulations have been complied with. It was not possible to include this report on the Forward Plan with 28 days’ notice because Medway’s evaluation of the preferred option had not been concluded by that point.
