New strategy in stroke

A New Era for Stroke calls on the government to commit to a new national stroke strategy to drive improvements in the access to new treatments such as Thrombectomy, post-acute care and to push forward the reorganisation of stroke services so that every stroke survivor can make the best possible recovery. Through our survey near 1,000 stroke survivors answered questions telling us that the support when they leave hospital isn’t there and over 45% said they felt abandoned. The current strategy runs out in 2017 and the government currently have no plans to renew this. We need your help to change their minds and make them listen to stroke survivors so please sign our petition and share it to as many people as possible. www.stroke.org.uk/petition
