Members of the Greater Manchester Connected Health City Stroke team (Dr Adrian Parry-Jones, Dr Lisa Brunton and Chris Ashton) recently featured in a line-up of more than 100 expert speakers who presented topics relating to the GM CHC Stroke project at the UK Stroke Forum conference at the International Centre in Telford.

As one of the highlights in the healthcare event calendar, the National UK Stroke Forum was an excellent opportunity for the GM CHC Stroke team to share learning and discuss the impact of health data research for Stroke patients in Greater Manchester. The GM CHC team presented their findings on the qualitative views of pre hospital clinicians in the accurate recognition of stroke, the need for innovation to assist them in the field of practice and the subsequent release of a complementary smartphone app to improve pathway compliance and promote the patients being taken to the correct destination for the presenting symptoms.

As part of the conference, the team presented a poster on the Acute Bundle of Care for IntraCerebral Haemorrhage (ABC-ICH) project which was exhibited to delegates over the course of the event. The poster outlined the process by which clinicians in Hyper Acute Stroke Units worked using the ABC ‘care bundle’ and app to optimise care, with the aim of reducing death and disability amongst this patient cohort. Since the implementation of the ABC care bundle, two lives have been saved on average each month at Salford Royal Foundation Trust Hyper Acute Stroke Unit.
