Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in the UK and single largest cause of complex disability in adults, with annual costs projected to rise to £75bn within 20 years.
100,000 people have strokes each year in the UK. The NHS England (NHSE) Long Term Plan is committed to saving 150,000 lives from cardiovascular disease over the next 10 years.
Stroke survivors, clinicians, and policymakers have consistently called for better quality data on the long-term consequences of stroke, to better inform their clinical decision making.
Unlocking the potential of data - reshaping health and care for stroke survivors with data. We are committed to providing data-driven solutions for stroke patients, health providers, researchers and policymakers, with an improved understanding of patient-centred health data and the use of cut-edging data analytics such as statistics, data mining, and AI technologies.
Multidisciplinary teams consisting of individuals drawn from different disciplines who come together to achieve a common goal. Centre to our approach is engagement with stakeholders from stroke survivors and clinicians to local and national policymakers, providing a pathway to translate research findings into patient benefit.
