Research with Impact: the South London Stroke Register (SLSR) research programme

We are blogging about how the South London Stroke Register (SLSR) and other stroke research at King’s College London has generated new insights into:

  • risks of stroke
  • effectiveness of stroke care
  • how well effective care is implemented
  • impacts for stroke survivors.

The SLSR has provided data and analyses that informed a Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee report on stroke, the National Stroke Strategy, and contributed to two National Audit Office reports on acute and longer-term stroke care. The latter contributed to a major service reconfiguration in London, which has led to lower mortality and more efficient use of health care resources for stroke. The SLSR provides a platform for designing and evaluating new models of stroke care, including the largest trial of Early Supported Discharge, a cost-effective intervention which is now provided in the majority of hospitals in England, as well as being rolled out internationally.
