Clinical Guidelines for Identifying Posterior CVAs

The request was successful.

Dear North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust,

Could you please provide me with any clinical guidelines, policies, procedures, protocols or similar that you have in place for the use by paramedics (including specialist/senior/advanced paramedics etc.) for the identification of posterior-circulation CVAs (strokes).

Further, could you provide me with any clinical guidelines, policies, procedures, protocols or similar that you have in place for the use by paramedics (including specialist/senior/advanced paramedics etc.) for the assessment and management of patients presenting with "vertigo" or "dizziness" as their primary symptom.

Yours faithfully,

Malcolm Macgregor
