We believe in life after stroke. That’s why we actively campaign for better stroke care, working with politicians of all parties to ensure stroke remains high on the political agenda. Find out what we're up to across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
We are excited about the new National Stroke Programme. Our campaigning in England will help ensure this Programme is delivered.
It's a huge task, but one that we are determined to succeed with. We'd love you to help us deliver life-changing improvements for people affected by stroke right across England, whether preventing stroke in the first place, making sure people get the right treatment in the crucial first few hours after a stroke, or giving people the ongoing support they need when rebuilding their lives.
We are working to influence the Department of Health in Northern Ireland. The Stroke Association want to urgently progress plans to reshape and improve stroke services. This includes services such as prevention, acute care and long-term support. These changes need to be led by the stroke community. You can find out more about what changes we want to see happen for people affected by stroke in Northern Ireland in our document ‘Progressing Stroke Reform in Northern Ireland’.
The Stroke Association calls for the new Scottish government to push on with the current stroke improvement work and quickly establish a new, progressive stroke service. One in which all patients receive timely access to evidence-based, stroke specialist treatment, rehabilitation and support. We encourage you to read our manifesto Make stroke the priority it needs to be in Scotland.
The Stroke Association communicates the views of stroke survivors and their family members and carers to policymakers, the NHS and local government. The Stroke Association campaigns to improve services for all those affected by stroke in Wales. This is so all stroke patients and survivors can rebuild their lives and make the best possible recovery.
We work closely with the Cross Party Group on Stroke in the Welsh Parliament. They produced a report into implementation of the Welsh Government’s Stroke Delivery Plan.
We’re calling on political parties to include a new national plan for stroke in their manifestos for the Welsh Parliament elections in 2021. You can find out more about what we want to see the next Welsh Government achieve for those affected by stroke in our document “The next Welsh Government: A new plan for stroke in Wales”.
