Physiotherapist James Benson talks about why the UK Stroke Forum Conference is such an important event for physiotherapists.
We want to say a huge thank you to all of our supporters.
The UK Stroke Assembly North took place on 30-31 May 2017 at Crewe Hall, Cheshire. Over 150 people affected by stroke came together to take action and have their say on stroke and aphasia. Read about the event, view photos and presentations from the plenary talks and workshops.
Our recent survey of stroke survivors suggests that over 80% of them have a physical disability after stroke, and 38% of those who said their disability was severe also said that their physiotherapy was poor or very poor.
Following a stroke, many treatments are recommended by health professionals, such as medications to prevent another stroke or physiotherapy to help limb weakness. Stroke survivors often have other chronic illnesses and report finding it difficult to follow treatments recommended by their doctors, nurses and therapists.
