The integrated community stroke service (ICSS) is part of the National Stroke Service model, coordinating transfer of care of stroke survivors from hospital, and providing home-based stroke rehabilitation through a specialist multidisciplinary team structure.  The ICSS is an integrated seven days per week service, providing early supported discharge, high-intensive and needs-based community stroke rehabilitation and disability management.
