Stroke services in Scotland have developed substantially over the last 20 years, and are undergoing continuous quality monitoring. However, the researchers do not have a clear idea of how Scottish services compare with those of other countries. They propose to analyse information from all 32 Scottish hospitals in comparison with over 100 hospitals in 32 other countries. They will analyse both the services available, and how good a recovery is made by stroke patients in Scotland. They intend that this study will help ‘benchmark’ Scottish stroke care against a wide range of other services, and assist stroke service development internationally.
