Stroke is one of the biggest killers in Wales and a leading cause of disability, with around 7,400 strokes occurring each year. There are nearly 67,000 stroke survivors living in Wales.
Our campaign aims to secure a commitment from the government for a new stroke strategy to improve the care, support and treatment of stroke survivors.
This recent event, hosted jointly with the Stroke Association and Kaleidoscope Health & Care, brought together over 50 delegates from 10 sustainability and transformation partnerships (STPs) and integrated care systems (ICSs) across England to initiate a new shared learning network of best practice across stroke care.
We are excited to share that the Government has just committed to the new national plan for stroke that we have been developing with NHS England.
