This is the third acute organisational audit report published under the auspices of the Sentinel Stroke National Audit Programme (SSNAP). It provides continuity from the previous 7 biennial rounds of the National Sentinel Stroke Organisational Audit and the 2012 and 2014 SSNAP acute organisational audits. It publishes national level findings on the organisation of stroke services, including acute care organisation, staffing and pathway at discharge. It reflects the organisation of stroke services as of 1 July 2016.
Trusts can use this report to benchmark their performance against national level findings and compare themselves with national standards.
This report is addressed to everyone who is interested in stroke services. It gives a comprehensive picture of current services and the style of the report should allow lay people as well as experts to read it and extract relevant information.
