Stroke Strategy Consultation Request

Please see correspondence below from NCP Stroke for your information.

Stroke is major cause of mortality and morbidity in our population and a major cost to our health service when outcomes are poor. Much improvement in services and outcomes has occurred in the last decade since the inception of the national stroke programme, but the nature of our demography, development of new stroke treatments and technologies, and the need for healthcare staff and public engagement on the issue of stroke are a significant challenge over the next decade.

We believe, the strategy for stroke in Ireland represents a comprehensive approach to our stroke services across the realms of prevention, acute care, restoration to life after stroke and research and education in stroke for the next 5 years.  It is an ambitious strategy for an investment of almost €20m in our stroke services at a time of great challenges for our economy and healthcare system but we are confident it will pay significant dividend for patients, the healthcare system and society as a whole.

You are invited to provide feedback on the Strategy. All feedback must be submitted on this feedback form and emailed to programme manager, Edina O’Driscoll at edina.odriscoll@hse.ie by 17.00 Wednesday 18th November 2020.
