Moving on (The Stroke Association)
"Moving on is our joint campaign with the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy which is lobbying for better access to community based (post hospital) physiotherapy for stroke survivors. The evidence we hear from stroke survivors and respected institutions such as the National Audit Office and the Royal College of Physicians shows that, on the whole, the care stroke patients receive in hospital is now better now than ever. However, the picture is quite different when stroke survivors leave hospital. We believe that the improvements made in the hospital phase must now be replicated in what we call the 'life after stroke' phase"
