SPIRIT OF EXCELLENCE AWARD 2021

The Spirit of Excellence Award honours members of the Angels community for outstanding contributions to stroke care excellence. Meet this year’s winners and nominees.

See All

    Every 30 minutes a stroke patient who could have been saved, dies or is permanently disabled, because they were treated in the wrong hospital.

    Our mission is simple. To increase the number of patients treated in stroke ready hospitals and to optimise the quality of treatment in all existing stroke centres. We are building a global community of stroke centres and stroke ready hospitals, working every day to improve the quality of treatment for every stroke patient. Support us in achieving this by joining the Angels Initiative to give life a chance.
