Plenty of room for improvement on Stroke Services

13 Jun 2017

Leading local health charity, Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke has welcomed the beginning of a conversation on the review of how Stroke Services are organised in Northern Ireland.

“We welcome the opportunity for the public and people with experience of stroke getting involved in conversations on how things can be improved.” Said Neil Johnston. Public Affairs Adviser for NICHS.

“We have first-hand knowledge of working with those who have experienced the current arrangements and we recognise that while there is much that is good there is always room for improvement.”

Mr Johnston explained that the charity would be helping stroke survivors and carers to both express their opinions and to be better informed about any future proposals.

“It’s important that people get involved and in particular that our local politicians are fully informed throughout the review process. We look forward to working together to improve services and health outcomes for everyone across Northern Ireland.

NICHS noted that reforms of services in other parts of the UK have seen a reduction in both deaths and disability from stroke.
