There are a number of ways in which you can help to support our stroke research.
Last week we held our 12th UK Stroke Club Conference at East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham. Our research engagement officer shared our initiatives in Patient and Public Involvement in research (PPI) advising on how those affected by stroke can have their say on the research that we fund.
