TIA / minor stroke referrals

The National Stroke Strategy requires all patients with a suspected TIA to be assessed and treated by a specialist within 24 hours.


Oxford University Hospitals provides daily TIA clinics (Monday to Sunday).

This is an outpatient service and does not replace the inpatient pathway for those with acute, disabling stroke who need hospital admission and acute stroke unit care.

Accessing the service

Minor Stroke and TIA Referral Form - ClinOx

Oxfordshire GP Practices should continue to refer to the TIA Service via their own Patient Record system (e.g. EMIS) which has an embedded referral pro forma. They should not use the link below.
