The Secondary Stroke Prevention Clinic (SSPC) is an Outpatient Clinic located at the Stratford General Hospital Site for individuals who have had a recent TIA or stroke. The clinic offers rapid access to physicians with stroke expertise and to specialized medical diagnostics for patients who are at high risk for stroke, have had a TIA and/or who have had a stroke.
The many services they provide include updating patients' medications, providing timely communication with patients' primary care providers, referrals to community-based services, and providing patients with education and lifestyle counseling. SSPCs are housed in centres with physicians with stroke expertise and with rapid, consistent access to diagnostics. SSPCs are mostly located in Designated Stroke Centres because the specialized services are already on site.
