Stroke Care

An estimated 150,000 people have a stroke in the UK each year causing significant long-term disability and loss of independence in many of those affected. Stroke can be preventable and early intervention is vital to good outcomes.

Care integration can impact on quality of care and improve outcomes at every stage of the patient pathway through prevention, early diagnosis and treatment and effective rehabilitation. Entries for this category can be from individuals or teams responsible for planning or delivering integrated care pathways for this group of patients. Entries will be judged against the general criteria. Submissions could include one or more of the following elements:

  • Identification of patients at risk of stroke, and intervention to reduce risk
  • Early recognition of transient ischaemic attack and stroke, and intervention 
  • Minimising the risk of stroke recurrence
  • Rehabilitation to maximise patients' independence and quality of life
  • Supportive care to help patients and their families to cope with the complex and multi-faceted impact of stroke
