Can you help us improve stroke care, prevention and further raise awareness of stroke across West Sussex?

We want to involve people living and working in West Sussex to help us improve stroke services across the stroke journey, from prevention to rehabilitation and recovery.

We believe more can be done to both prevent strokes and improve care. To help us develop plans, we wish to better understand the experiences of stroke patients, their friends and carers, health professionals and the community and voluntary organisations helping people.

So, whether you have experienced a stroke, know someone who has, or provide stroke
