New project aims to get stroke survivors in Nottingham back to work  

News Content

A pilot project run by the NIHR Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care covering Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire (CLAHRC-NDL) in partnership with the University of Nottingham is aiming to assist more stroke survivors to return to work. The Return to Work After Stroke study, looked at gaps in existing services for stroke survivors in supporting them back into work and then developed the specialist intervention to assess whether it could improve outcomes for those stroke survivors wishing to return to work. With less than half of stroke survivors currently returning to employment, they hope to increase the number of stroke patients that return to work — where possible with their existing employer.
