Guide published to support people affected by stroke

The Stoke Association has updated their My Stroke Guide, which gives people free access to trusted information about stroke and risk factors, alongside advice on prevention. Around 80,000 people a year are admitted to hospital with a stroke, and there are more than one million stroke survivors in England. As well as personal stories from stroke survivors, the guide includes case studies from healthcare professionals who have used the guide, and explains how it can support staff working with people affected by stroke. It also includes information on locally commissioned support services.
