Would really appreciate if someone could help me with the below Presentation

The TIA target within the Trust is that all high risk TIA patients are seen and treated within 24 hours.

How would you suggest that the service is run to meet this target?

I don't know who the Trust is, but I am guessing you are not in USA. When someone presents to HOSPITAL our goal is to evaluate/treat within 60 minutes. We have MD see pt in ER, get CT of head and start meds as needed. We call this "Code Stroke" so a special team reacts to the code.

As for treating outside the hospital - Doctor offices will tell people who call office to just call 911 or go to hospital. They are wasting time otherwise.

Not sure this is what you meant, but hope it helps

We treat any stroke symptoms the same with the standard benchmark goals. Door to doc in 10 minutes, door to CT in 20 minutes, door to CT read in 45 minutes and door to TPA in 60 minutes if applicable. Our hospital uses a "stroke alert".

The important thing to remember is a TIA is a warning that a larger stroke is going to happen. A lot of patients and physicians will ignore the symptoms and that is a big mistake. TIA patients still need to be admitted and evaluated.
