National priority projects: Stroke
The SLCSN works with the Stroke Improvement Programme (SIP), an NHS initiative that supports stroke networks and the implementation of the National Stroke Strategy.
The Network and SIP work closely with local NHS trusts and acute sites along with Healthcare for London, the Department of Health, the Stroke Association, and many other stroke organisations to manage and sustain service improvements and commissioning efficiencies that benefit stroke patients.
The Stroke Improvement Programme is currently working with 48 project sites across the country on five national projects across the stroke pathway.
