Reshaping Stroke Services in Northern Ireland

In 2017, Health and Social Care organisations in conjunction with stroke survivors, carers and charities undertook a pre-consultation process which included a series of engagements and meetings into how best to improve stroke care for patients in Northern Ireland.

A Task and Finish Group made up of Health and Social Care professionals, clinicians, stroke charities and stroke survivors listened carefully to the wide range of views and feedback following the pre-consultation.

Building on that work, the Department of Health will launch a formal public consultation in March 2019.

Many of the potential improvements outlined by the 2017 Pre-Consultation have already been implemented.
