Oakdale

Oakdale Ward is a 29 bedded ward, which includes a three bedded, hyper-acute stroke unit. We provide care for patients with stroke, neurology, oncology and haematological conditions.

We are a dedicated team, including stroke nurses who provide acute assessment of patients with stroke symptoms in the Emergency Department, 24 hours a day. This service enables us to provide thrombolysis, if appropriate, for certain types of stroke.

We have nurses who deliver inpatient chemotherapy to patients with haematological cancers. We also take calls out of hours to our oncology helpline, triage patients based on their symptoms, and give advice to patients undergoing chemotherapy. In addition to our highly trained and caring nurses, we have a dedicated team of doctors and work closely with other members of our multi-disciplinary team to provide high standards of patient care.

We want to make you feel as comfortable as possible when you visit our wards, and all our staff aim to adhere to our values of Passionate, Respectful, and Responsible. Find out more information about our vision and values.

We accept referrals from acute wards and GPs. The patients that we receive and treat on this unit may have a variety of neurological conditions such as head injuries, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, motor neurone disease and Guillain–Barré syndrome. We also see patients who have suffered strokes.

Lascelles is a patient-centred environment with nursing and therapy staff providing a high standard of care. This enables a smooth transition into community and home life with support where necessary.

The Lascelles Rehabilitation Unit is just a short walk from the main Harrogate District Hospital site, and is located on Highgate Park, Harrogate.
