Join us as we launch the Bristol Health Partners Stroke Health Integration Team (HIT) in partnership with Rosetta Life, Bristol After Stroke and the Stroke Association.
Register via eventbrite and drop in any time between 2-7pm to find out more about the new Stroke HIT.
Hear from Richard Lyle about plans for transforming stroke services in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG). He will be speaking at 2.30pm and again at 5.30pm. Richard is Associate Director for Service Redesign at BNSSG Clinical Commissioning Group. Also hear about how the Stroke HIT has been supporting the review of local stroke services and our vision for the HIT's role for the future.
Local boxer Dan Sarkozi, who experienced a stroke at the
age of 28 just before the biggest fight of his career, will be at the event. He is campaigning to get patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure operations funded
by the NHS, including a UK Parliament petition. PFO is a type of congenital hole in the heart. Holes in the heart
are the leading cause of stroke among younger people.
The Stroke HIT works with local partners to prevent strokes and improve the lives of people affected by stroke in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire. Hear about our work, be inspired, tell us what you think - and maybe even join the team! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about us.
Highlights of the launch day include:
As part of the launch event we are holding a photo exhibition. If you've been affected by stroke, please send in photos of what makes you smile and has helped during recovery. It could be a special place, people or things that have inspired you.
To submit a photo for the exhibition, please contact Emily Dodd on email@example.com or 0117 328 7496.
