Announcing the first of our new Priority Programme Awards
Today, the Chief Scientist Office and the Stroke Association celebrate a partnership that will build on the excellence of stroke research in Scotland.
James Green tells us about what he does as a Volunteer Support Officer.
The Stroke Association's Stroke recoveries at risk report is based on the responses of almost 2,000 people affected by stroke across the UK, 169 of whom are Scots. This makes it the largest survey of the stroke community since Covid-19 took hold.
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 up to across Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
Read about our past campaigns and what they've achieved.
A new report, published on Monday 18 February 2019 by the Stroke Association, reveals that around half of all stroke survivors in Northern Ireland feel abandoned when they leave hospital and are unable to make a full recovery due to a lack of rehabilitation and on-going support.
The second day of ESOC highlighted the value of collaborations between professional societies and patient representatives for the advancement of stroke care. It saw the launch of the Stroke Action for Europe (2018-2030), a major collaborative initiative between the principal professional and patient organisations setting ambitious targets for stroke care over the next decade.
The number of strokes across the UK is likely to rise by almost half (44%) in the next 20 years, according to a new report published today by the Stroke Alliance for Europe (SAFE) and the Stroke Association.
