"The UK Stroke Forum is the best stroke meeting that I attend each year, not least because it is truly multidisciplinary and therefore a place where I can meet a wide range of colleagues and hear about developments outside my own professional area."
Professor Tony Rudd, National Clinical Director for Stroke NHS England
