The Department of Health’s Stroke Strategy was published on 5 December 2007. Alan Johnson’s foreward says that stroke has been described as an “earthquake of the brain” which can impact on how people move, see, speak, feel or understand their world. The key features of the strategy are summarised in a 10 point action plan under the following headings: Awareness; Preventing stroke; Involvement; Acting on the warnings; Stroke as a medical emergency; Stroke unit quality; Rehabilitation and community support; Participation; Workforce; Service improvement.
