Save the date for UKSF 2023

4 to 6 December 2023

We're incredibly excited to be in the heart of the West Midlands in 2023 for a face-to-face 18th UK Stroke Forum conference at ICC Birmingham.

Following record numbers of delegates at Liverpool in 2022, we hope you can join us again. We'd love to see you there for hands-on learning, reconnecting, peer-to-peer engagement and to discover the latest ground-breaking research in the field of stroke. Further information will be available shortly with registration opening in mid-July.

For regular updates, please sign up to our mailing list.


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, during 2020 – 2021 the UK Stroke Forum 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.

2022 saw our first return to an in-person conference post-Covid and we were delighted to be joined in Liverpool by a record-breaking number of delegates, sponsors and exhibitors.

We're excited to be hosting our 2023 conference in person again at the world-renowned ICC Birmingham. 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 delegate safety

Our team will be working closely with ICC Birmingham to ensure the safety and well-being of delegates at our UK Stroke Forum event.

Further information will be available in due course, however if you have any concerns, please contact ukstrokeforum@stroke.org.uk.

Benefits of attending UKSF

The UK Stroke Forum is privileged to have always attracted a host of world-class speakers and leading physicians, including Chris Whitty in 2021, who headlined the open plenary.

Although the 2023 event is in person, we will add digital elements where possible, including a conference app, online e-posters, and recording of selected sessions, 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.

CPD points

The UK Stroke Forum is accredited through the Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians.

CPD points will be awarded per hour; last year we had a total of 18 points available. These were awarded for attending live sessions and for those delegates accessing the on-demand content.

Once this year's programme has been authorised, we will confirm the number of CPD points available.
