Most stroke survivors can walk short distances but do not achieve good community ambulation. This limited mobility has health and wellbeing implications, reducing physical activity and fitness of individuals, making them vulnerable to secondary stroke and other diseases. It also affects their quality of life and ability to participate in social activities.

Cerebral small vessel disease (SVD) is usually associated with high blood pressure, and causes 20% of all strokes. It is the main cause of cognitive changes and dementia associated with stroke. Behavioural symptoms such as apathy are also common in patients with SVD.
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?
