Presented Petition

Petition presented to the House but not read on the Floor

New national stroke strategy

The petition of residents of the UK,

Declares that there is a need for a new national strategy for stroke; further that a new strategy will ensure that stroke survivors and their carers receive the support they need; further that it will drive improvements in hospital care; further that it will drive the roll out of a new treatment, thrombectomy; and further that a new strategy will save lives.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to commit to writing a new national stroke strategy.

And the petitioners remain, etc.—[Presented by Mr Nigel Evans.]
