The Stroke Health Integration Team (HIT) brings together clinicians, commissioners, academics, care and support providers and other experts, as well as stroke service users and their families and carers. We are committed to preventing strokes and improving the lives of people affected by stroke through working together beyond the limits of individual organisations, in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG).

Local stroke prevention, treatment and care services need to be improved and to be more accountable to local patients, carers and the public. Stroke care is delivered by more than 20 services and organisations in BNSSG, and about 1,300 people a year have a stroke in the region.
