Nottingham Stroke Network

Why we are researching stroke

Stroke is common, devastating and life changing. Approximately 110,000 people in England have a first or recurrent stroke each year, and a staggering 25% of strokes occur in those under the age of 65.

Although most people survive, stroke is the single largest cause of disability in a community setting, with survivors frequently struggling with mobility, speech, depression, cognitive problems, and activities of daily living such as domestic tasks and dressing. 



Nottingham Stroke Network represents a network of researchers and clinicians from the University of Nottingham and the Nottingham University Hospitals Trust dedicated to reducing the impact of stroke.
