Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland urges the Health Secretary to bring life-changing stroke procedure back into Scottish hospitals
The call comes after it was revealed earlier this year that a procedure called thrombectomy is no longer available to patients in Scotland but is still available elsewhere in the UK. In 2017, only 13 people received this life-changing treatment but as many as 600 would have benefited.
