How the network improves stroke care
The South London Cardiac and Stroke Network consists of workstreams that focus on each area along the patient pathway, from prevention through rehabilitation.
Dedicated resources in the Network provide expert assistance from service improvement to collaborative commissioning to patient and public involvement.

Development of pan-London stroke program
Lucy Grothier, director of the SLCSN, was highly involved in the development of the pan-London stroke program. As a member of the board and the Commission and Finance panel, Lucy reviewed key documents that would become the detailed structure of Healthcare for London's highly strategic project.
This initiative created a web of networks across the capital, all focused on acheiving the Stroke Strategy for London objectives.
The SLCSN takes direction and priorities from national strategies and regulatory documents.
