Meet Nelson. He’s huge. And hairy. He’s also incredibly calm, affable and intuitive. He has the perfect disposition to work in The National Hospital.
Stroke is one of the UK’s leading causes of death. There are over 100,000 strokes in the UK every year and, 1 in 8 of these prove to be fatal within the first 30 days. As the UK’s population continues to age, strokes are expected to become an increasingly common condition.
Research has shown that patients who are cared for on a dedicated stroke hospital ward are much more likely to survive, and to retain their independence and living at home within a year, than if they were treated on a non-dedicated stroke ward.
The National Brain Appeal is currently seeking to raise £1.5million in order to create an acute interventional neuroradiology service for the treatment of stroke at Queen Square. This service will provide urgent care, as well as help support regional and national stroke treatment.
