The Source

What is The Source website?

The Source website has been created to provide information, advice and sources of support to young people in Suffolk – when they need it, on a range of issues that impact their lives.

The Source website is aimed at supporting young people in Suffolk aged 11-19 years old (up to 25 for young people with additional needs).

What can I use the Source website for?

  • To find out where you and your friends can go to get support for things you are worried about.
  • To find information and advice on topics important to you.
  • To share your advice and views on the things you care about so that we can share them on The Source website, to help other young people.

Have you or a relative had a stroke?

All individuals who have had a stroke are eligible for a 6-month post stroke review

Have you had yours?

The six-month review service is for all adults 18 and over, who are registered with a GP and who have had a diagnosis of stroke.

Most people will automatically be contacted by their local NHS commissioned provider for an appointment between 4-8 months after a stroke. The review allows time to discuss your medical, social and emotional needs and can provide you with helpful information and signposting or onward referral if further treatment or support is required.

If you are not sure if a review has been done or if there are any queries please contact Margaret Reeves, stroke nurse, by email or telephone.
