Stroke Prevention Clinic:

Our patients have access to the Stroke Prevention Clinic at the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre in Barrie.

There is a self-referral stroke education clinic available to all patients who come to either of the MAHC sites (HDMH, SMMH) with TIA or stroke. This is not a prevention clinic.  Its purpose is to provide general stroke education. This is provided by the MAHC District Stroke Nurse - Donna Crump R.N.
