There are over 1.2 million stroke survivors in the UK. Thanks to huge advances in emergency care and treatment, there are more people surviving stoke than ever. But stroke has devastating effects that can mean stroke survivors, as well as those close to them, have complex needs for professional support.
Research can find new ways and improve how we stop, spot, treat and support those affected by stroke. The Stroke PSP will identify and prioritise the unanswered questions about stroke from both people affected by stroke and the health and social care professionals who work with them.
The Stroke Association is leading this PSP driven by its core purpose to be the trusted voice of those affected by stroke and to improve outcomes in stroke prevention, treatment and lifelong support.
