LETTER: Thanks for signing care petition

I’m writing to thank the people of South East Coast for showing their support for people affected by stroke and signing our petition.

Our Government’s current stroke strategy is coming to an end and the Government has no plans to introduce a new one. Without this, lives could be at risk. That’s why the Stroke Association is campaigning for a new National Stroke Strategy, to ensure that when stroke strikes, survivors get the care and support they need to rebuild their lives.

Stroke survivors in the South East Coast have told us they feel abandoned when they leave hospital and do not have access to the vital support they need to help with their recovery.

We need just over 150 signatures per constituency before the Government will debate this issue in Parliament.

I urge you and your family and friends to sign the Stroke Association’s petition by visiting http://strk.org.uk/neweraforstroke.

Regional Head of Operations in the South East, Stroke Association, Whites Grounds, London SE1 3LA
