Stroke HIT widens access to public consultation for stroke care

6 November 2019

Around a third of people who have a stroke experience aphasia – communication difficulties following damage to the part of the brain which controls language.

The Stroke HIT aphasia group is led by people who have aphasia caused by strokes. They created accessible resources with help from speech therapists and communications staff from Healthier Together.

Learnings from this pilot project will be applied to the public consultation documents on the stroke care pathway reconfiguration, which will allow people with aphasia take part.
