Trusts fail on stroke targets

5th November 2009

Figures show that fewer than 40% of acute and specialist trusts are achieving the required standards of stroke care.

The Care Quality Commission made stroke care one of 13 national priority performance indicators in the annual health check for the first time this year. But the CQC’s ratings for 2008/09 show only 37% of the 150 acute and specialist trusts measured achieved the stroke target while 47% underachieved and 16% failed. NHS East of England had the worst regional performance rating.
