Over the next 13 weeks, Health and Social Care organisations, in conjunction with stroke survivors, carers, charities and staff, will be holding a series of meetings, engagements and workshops, as part of a pre-consultation process, to listen to a wide range of views and to discuss and debate how best to enhance stroke care.
It is important that we fully consider people’s opinions about these proposals, and we are inviting patients, staff, clinicians, professional bodies, or anyone that may be affected by or have opinions about the proposals to give us their views.
In particular, the Health and Social Care are keen to hear from people who may be using stroke services, or those caring for people who have used stroke services, people who are working in affected services, and groups representing people who might be affected.

The HSC is committed to making information as accessible as possible and to promoting meaningful engagement. The pre-consultation document can be made available on request and where reasonably practicable in an alternative format e.g. braille, audio formats, large print or minority languages to meet the needs of those for whom English is not their first language.
Responses should be returned to the Health and Social Care Board by 5.00pm on Friday 15 September 2017.
