My mother had a major stroke just over a week ago .Luckly she was seen and had an emergancy treatment  to remove the clot . this has ment she has recovered and is home  now .But if she had had her stroke outside office hours the treatment is not given  .resulting in a much worse prognosis for the patiant and possibly admitance to a care home /long term caring in hospital  . If the treatment is avalable 24 hours  surly it would be cost effective  as long term care would not be needed as much  , if your family member had a stroke  you would want the best treatment  for them . The docters cannot do this treatment out side office hours  as there is no proviso for funding it  uk wide  The solution is have  teams who can move from hospital to hospital  . possibly with  a core team at each so you have only transport a few docters /nurses  or better still  fund teams properly and prehaps consider a costings exercise treatment verses long hospital stays care home/care packeges
