    Over 50 people attended an event organised by the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership with the aim of improving stroke care in the region.

    In 2015/16 there were 3,600 strokes in West Yorkshire and Harrogate. The partnership’s ambition is to have fewer stroke incidents across the area, with more lives saved and improved recovery outcomes.

    The aim of the event was to ask people who have had a stroke, their carers and community organisations, including charities such as the Stroke Association, Age UK and The British Heart Foundation for their views on how specialist stroke care (the care people receive in the first few hours and days after having a stroke) could be further improved to ensure services are fit for the future.
