Existing vision tests do not tell us how a patient’s life will be influenced by their vision problems. This project aims to understand how the results of vision tests relate to how stroke survivors will be able to function in their daily lives.

Early Supported Discharge (ESD) is the discharge of a stroke patient from hospital to their own home, co-ordinated by a team of therapists, nurses and a doctor. A number of ESD services have been set up across England. Do these services offer the same benefits to patients as those identified in clinical trials?
Stroke Early Supported Discharge (ESD) is a multidisciplinary team intervention that clinical trials have shown reduces length of hospital stay and reduces risk of death and dependency. This research programme will investigate the impact of implementing ESD at scale and in real world conditions and investigate which models of ESD are effective in practice.
Our Keynote Lecture showcases the latest advancements being made in stroke research.
This year’s lecture will be delivered by Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell, President and Vice-Chancellor of The University of Manchester. Professor Rothwell is one of the UK’s leading neuroscientists whose research focusses on inflammation in brain disease, especially stroke.
New research review suggests that post-stroke fatigue is a symptom independent of depression, pain and sleep problems, and may depend on the 'excitability' of the movement part of the brain.
Thousands of stroke survivors with visual problems could improve their sight from the comfort of their own home using two new web-based therapies.
As part of our research programme, we fund exceptional candidates from stroke professional backgrounds to our prestigious Postgraduate and Postdoctoral Fellowship positions. Meet our new fellows for 2017.
