In January, NHS England announced their Long Term Plan, in which stroke has been named as a new national priority. It also includes sections on both stroke care as well as cardiovascular disease.
We believe in life after stroke. That’s why we actively campaign for better stroke care, working with politicians of all parties to ensure stroke remains high on the political agenda. It's why we fund research into finding new treatments, and also ways of reducing the risk of stroke across the UK. Find out what we're upto currently in Scotland.
During February and March pharmacies across Wales are joining the Lower Your Risk of Stroke campaign, a partnership between Community Pharmacy Wales, Public Health Wales and the Stroke Association.
