More help for stroke patients

28th May 2008

Campaigners say that many stroke patients with speech problems are being left isolated once they are discharged after hospital treatment.

While the NHS offers those with communication problems access to community support groups, the Stroke Association says it believes that 90% of patients in England who need such help are not getting it. Of the 150,000 people who have a stroke each year in the UK, it is estimated that as many as 50,000 who survive are left with communication problems.
