About the lecture:
Professor Naomi Fulop will present her research on reorganising hospital stroke services in London and Greater Manchester. This research found that local systems that reorganise care aiming to treat all stroke patients in large specialist stroke units results in better care and fewer deaths. Naomi will set out how these lessons played an important role in reorganising stroke services and improving care across the NHS. Examples will include how this work drove further change and improvement in Greater Manchester, helped sustain the London stroke system, and influenced local plans for stroke care in many parts of England. Naomi will also describe how this research helped shape national health policy and clinical good practice guidelines across the UK. Finally, she will reflect on what this work means for organisation and delivery of stroke services and how we can learn and share lessons from changes of this kind.
