What is the UK Stroke Forum?

The UK Stroke Forum is a coalition of over 30 organisations all committed to improving stroke care in the UK.

We organise two annual multidisciplinary conferences for healthcare professionals – a three-day event in November (Liverpool) and a one-day event in June (Belfast).

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.

Our events offer delegates the opportunity to:

  • gain relevant accredited professional training
  • find out the latest research and service developments
  • learn about new innovations and services in the exhibition
  • network with colleagues from across the entire care pathway
  • showcase their work by submitting an abstract for presentation at the event.

Why not follow us on Twitter: @ukstrokeforum #UKSF17 and #NISC17 and connect with us on LinkedIn so you can be kept updated with the latest event information?

Watch this short video to see why UKSF is an unmissable event for anyone involved in stroke care:

“Every day, stroke devastates lives. The condition is the UK’s fourth biggest killer, and it’s only through the hard work of professionals committed to making improvements in stroke care that so many patients are on the road to recovery. There have been significant advances in the way stroke is treated in hospital, and new treatments such as thrombectomy represent a real step forward for stroke care. But there are real challenges ahead for us. There’s an alarming shortage of stroke consultants and specialist nurses, for example. This year’s UK Stroke Forum was an invaluable opportunity for all stroke professionals and researchers to discuss the latest developments in stroke care, and help improve standards of care for stroke survivors.”
