Following the Northern Ireland Assembly election, we're ready to work with newly elected MLAs to help make stroke a priority. 

We believe that every stroke survivor has the right to make the best recovery they can after stroke. Where you live or when you have your stroke should not prevent you from receiving the right care. 

We've set out our asks for Government in our manifesto including reshaping stroke care, investing in rehabilitation and improving prevention.

We've reached 1000 days

The 26 May 2022 will mark 1000 days since the Reshaping Stroke Care consultation closed. We're still waiting for results, recommendations and revised timelines which allow us to move forward with improving stroke care in Northern Ireland. Now is the time to put stroke on the agenda of newly elected MLAs and the Health Minister.

We've developed an open letter that we'll be sending to the Health Minister, calling for informed, ambitious and timely stroke care transformation in Northern Ireland. This letter has been signed by a number of other individuals and charities showing that they also want to #MakeStrokeAPriority
