November 29 – December 1

We're back and doing what we do best! We're incredibly excited to share that UKSF 2022 will return as a face-to-face event at ACC Liverpool. 

We hope you can join us to celebrate our return as an in-person event. We’d love to see you there for hands-on learning, reconnecting, peer-to-peer engagement and to discover the latest groundbreaking research in the field of stroke. Further information will be available shortly with registration opening in mid-July.

The UK Stroke Forum is the UK's largest multidisciplinary conference for stroke care professionals.

Our aim is to provide opportunities for all stroke professionals and researchers to come together so they can learn from each other, share ideas and ultimately improve standards of care for stroke survivors. 

Due to the pandemic and in line with government guidance, for the last two years, the UK Stroke Forum has had to adapt and transform into an innovative virtual learning environment. These virtual conferences have been highly acclaimed, boasting world-class renowned speakers and ground-breaking parallel sessions. We have been joined live or on-demand by over 1,800 delegates annually, with our top class virtual programme allowing content to be accessed at any time, by a wealth of attendees from across the globe.

We're excited to be hosting the event in person in 2022 at ACC Liverpool. Join us to share more unmissable ground-breaking research, face-to-face learning opportunities and exciting workshops for all stroke professionals and researchers. Delegates will be able to come together, network and collaborate on a rich provision of fields paramount in the stroke care pathway.

Ensuring a safe return

Our team have been working with ACC Liverpool to ensure the safe return of delegates to the UK Stroke Forum. We understand how important it is to meet in person, but appreciate that not all delegates will have the confidence to return to large conferences, particularly as we head towards the winter months.

Below, we highlight a range of measures that we have put in place that will ensure the safe return of our delegates to ACC Liverpool.    

  • Booking Protect is an optional refund protection service that delegates can choose to add to their registration at the time of purchase. If delegates are unable to attend UKSF due to Illness, they can apply for a full refund up to 45 days after the event.
  • The ACC have developed a Covid Excellence package for all clients, ensuring that every event operates with a robust set of safety and security measures in place.
  • The ACC have spent the past 6 months fine-tuning their health and safety protocols and have safely and securely hosted over 20 events since August 2021.
  • Face masks available on arrival.
  • Hand sanitiser stations are available throughout the venue.
  • Catering stations are carefully positioned to avoid overcrowding.

We are extremely excited to get back to in-person events, but we have an obligation to keep our delegates safe. The UK Stroke Forum Committee would like to stress the importance of being respectful to those wishing to wear masks and observe social distancing. We cannot ignore health and safety concerns and have built a robust health and safety package to ensure staff and our attendees enjoy a successful UK Stroke Forum.

Benefits of attending UKSF

The UK Stroke Forum is privileged to have always attracted a host of world-class speakers and leading physicians. In 2021, we were delighted to be joined by Chief Medical Office for England, Chris Whitty, who headlined the opening plenary and featured in the Q&A session. The Princess Margaret Memorial Lecture was also one of the highest attended sessions, with a thought-provoking speech by Professor Dame Catherine Watkins.

Feedback from our state of the art virtual conference platform has been excellent; delegates have welcomed the opportunity of accessing programme content on-demand after the event. Although our 2022 event is in person, we'll take these considerations into account and will be adding digital elements to the event where possible for greater accessibility.

As always, this year’s event will give delegates the opportunity to:

  • Gain relevant CPD accredited professional training.
  • Discover the latest research and service developments with exciting keynote lectures, ground-breaking parallel sessions and training workshops.
  • Learn about new innovations in the exhibition area where companies will be showcasing their services and products.
  • Network with colleagues from across the entire care pathway.
  • Showcase your work by submitting an abstract/poster for presentation at the event.
