Held at the ACC Liverpool, the UK Stroke Forum is the largest multidisciplinary stroke conference in the UK. The event provides opportunities for stroke professionals and researchers to come together so they can learn from each other, share ideas and ultimately improve standards of care for stroke survivors.

The conference will include an update from Professor Sir Bruce Keogh, NHS Medical Director, and a one-day dedicated training stream designed specifically for primary care. This stream will provide guidance on prevention, diagnosis and management of stroke in primary care, with workshops focusing on cognitive difficulties after stroke.

Dr Katie Gallacher, RCGP Representative for the UK Stroke Forum, said:

The consequences of stroke can be considerable for individuals and their families, and primary healthcare professionals have a crucial role to play in achieving this.

The UK Stroke Forum is an essential event for primary care professionals to find out the latest clinical guidelines for stroke, and help shape the future of the stroke care pathway. I’d urge readers interested in attending to register as soon as possible.
