How we produce our information

After a stroke you need accurate and trustworthy information. That's why we ask stroke survivors and their families, as well as medical experts, to help us when we put our information together. Find out how you can help us improve.

Information Standard

Information Standard logo

We follow the processes set out in the NHS England Information Standard. This means that we regularly review and update all of our information on health and social care.

We use plain English and accessible design for all our information. 

Sources

It’s important that our information is based on accurate and up-to-date evidence, so we only use reliable sources for the latest research. This includes information from professional bodies and other reliable sources including NHS, NICE, Royal College of Physicians, medical journals and textbooks.

If you would like to know what sources we used to put together our information on a particular topic, email us at feedback@stroke.org.uk and we will send you a list.

Accessibility

We’re committed to making our information accessible to as many people as possible. All of our information publications are available as large print word documents and a selection are available as online audio.

You can find out more about accessibility and request other formats.

Translations

We are committed to supporting the Welsh Language Duty, and we are making our core publications available in Welsh. 

We translate some of our guides into other languages, you can find a list of translated titles here. If you need information in another language that we don't offer, contact the Helpline to find out about our interpreting service.

Sponsorship

We get help from some private companies to pay the printing costs of a small number of our publications. This means we can reach more people who need our information. We keep full editorial control of all our content, and we follow strict rules about who funds us.  For a full list of our sponsored publications, please email feedback@stroke.org.uk.
