The new stroke strategy, launched on 5 December 2007, sets a clear direction for the development of stroke services in England over the next ten years.

This strategy has been developed in partnership with stakeholders, including representatives from stroke charities, stroke professionals in NHS and social care professionals, and those affected by stroke and their carers. The National Director for Stroke, Professor Roger Boyle, supported by these stroke experts, led on this work.
