Stroke research praised by CQC

Salford Royal’s stroke research was singled out for praise in the recent CQC ‘Outstanding’ report, which highlighted internationally-recognised portfolios of work. This  follows an excellent year for the acute research delivery team in 2017-18, when they were the 2nd highest recruiter to stroke studies in England. More than 500 patients took part in trials – around a quarter of those admitted to Salford Royal with stroke or suspected stroke.
