Greater Manchester shares its experience of re-designing stroke care
On 30th April, over 60 people from across the UK came to Salford Royal to hear about how Greater Manchester has re-organised its stroke services so that they now deliver some of the best care in the country.
The programme aimed to share both best practice and the pitfalls of change, and help support other regions in transforming their services.
Speakers included Professor Ruth Boaden who shared the findings from the NIHR research study exploring the centralisation of services in London and Manchester. Also featured were local clinicians who shared their experiences of establishing Comprehensive, Primary and District Stroke Centres. The ambulance and community pathways were also considered along with finance and involving the patient/carer voice.
