Researchers at Newcastle University would like to learn about your preferences on how services in the NHS could be organised to provide clot retrieval treatment (thrombectomy) for stroke patients.
Clot retrieval involves a radiologist inserting a tube into a brain artery to remove a clot which is causing a severe stroke. This procedure is carried out by highly skilled neuro-radiologists and requires special hospital facilities. For further information about thrombectomy (how it is done, risks associated with the treatment and cost) please view the short film on the BBC website.
If you're interested in providing your preferences on how services in the NHS could be organised to provide clot retrieval treatment (thrombectomy) to help inform the future treatment of stroke patients, please complete the brief questionnaire.
All data collected is anonymous, and it's your decision whether you wish to complete the questionnaire or not. The deadline for submission of questionnaires is Friday 12 May 2017.
Please note that the questionnaire has been designed to be completed on a desktop PC or laptop – if you use a mobile phone you may need to scroll up/down or left/right to see all the information in the questionnaire.
