Given that stroke is a leading cause of death and disability, with stroke survivors leaving hospital with an average of 7 disabilities, many needing complex and life-long care and contributing to delays in discharge and pressures across the health and social care system, how does North East and North Cumbria ICB plan to appropriately fund and resource the North East and North Cumbria Integrated Stroke Delivery Network as the essential delivery mechanism for meeting guideline level standards of care and achieving the Long Term Plan’s stroke commitments? What protection and security can you provide to the committed and valuable stroke network staff who are working tirelessly to improve the quality and safety of local services for this clinical priority?

The North East and North Cumbria ICB recognise the importance of high quality stroke services for our local population and in order to facilitate that we understand the need for ongoing development and transformation. As an ICB we have strong links with our local networks and regardless of the changing landscape we continue to collaborate to ensure patients and their families have access to high quality stroke provision across the North East and North Cumbria.

As an ICB we are continuing to develop our clinical strategy to define our priorities based on health inequalities, health outcomes and quality of life for our local communities. We are aware of the significant progress which has been made in stroke services over recent years and we know that there is more to do to ensure equity in terms of CVD prevention, the importance of timely emergency response, treatment, ongoing specialist rehabilitation and secondary prevention. The Stroke Network have been and will continue to be an integral part of our partnership, harnessing clinical leadership to transform and develop services that meet national and local standards. Our commitment is to continue working with the network to understand any changes to resource, working together to address any issues as the local system landscape emerges.

We would like to thank you and your colleagues for ongoing, tireless work to ensure better access and outcomes for those who have experienced stroke services.
