Sentinel Stroke National Audit Programme – Annual Report 2019-20

Reports | Published: 14 Jan 2021

This is the 7th Annual Sentinel Stroke National Audit Programme (SSNAP) report. The purpose of this report is to provide a baseline summary of the principal ambitions of stroke care in the 2019 NHS Long Term Plan. This identifies five key areas for progress including high quality specialist stroke care, seven day priority clinical standards, expanding reperfusion treatment, providing higher intensity models of rehabilitation and improved long-term outcomes.

This report provides detailed and comprehensive information on the clinical standard for each ambition, presents the current position including national trends, the future trajectory over the next 5 years and recommendations on what additional measures may need to be implemented in order to achieve the ambitions. Data has been collected from both the patient-level clinical audit for the period April 2019-March 2020, as well as incorporating data from the Acute Organisational Audit (2019).
