National Sentinel Stroke Audit 2010 – Royal College of Physicians – May 2011

“Stroke care still improving but concerns remain
The final report of the National Sentinel Stroke Audit shows that care for patients with stroke is still improving 12 years after the start of the audit. 88% of patients spent at least some time on a stroke unit which is excellent progress from 74% in 2008.  Patients on stroke units have better outcomes than those admitted to and treated on general wards.

The audit, commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP), was carried out on behalf of the Intercollegiate Stroke Working Party by the Royal College of Physicians’ Clinical Standards Department, and covers 100% of eligible hospitals in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.”
