Stroke awards open

NOMINATIONS for The Stroke Association’s Life After Stroke Awards 2012 are now open.

One person has a stroke every five minutes in the UK and these accolades celebrate the courage, determination and achievements of survivors of all ages.

They also honour the commitment and compassion of carers, volunteers, stroke groups, health professionals and GP practice teams across the country.

Winners in each of the nine categories will be invited to a special presentation at The Dorchester Hotel in London, where they will receive their award from a celebrity supporter of The Stroke Association.

To nominate a person, group or team for the awards, visit or call 01527 908911 for a nomination form.
