About the National Stroke Audit
The National Stroke Audit is a Stroke Foundation initiative delivered as part of our commitment to promoting evidence-based stroke care. The National Stroke Audit provides longitudinal data on clinical performance.
The National Stroke Audit first commenced in 2007 and each alternate year the Stroke Foundation switches focus between acute stroke services and inpatient rehabilitation services The report provided present data in an accessible format to help services and state clinical networks to identify where improvements are required, lobby for change and celebrate success. Audits are a quality improvement measure and one of the seven pillars of clinical governance.
