Stroke Rehabilitation

Our stroke research is primarily focused on rehabilitation and longer-term care

We have a long-established programme of research addressing the longer term psycho-social outcomes for people and their families after stroke. Our work is underpinned by strong national and international collaborations. We work in close collaboration with the Leeds Institute of Clinical Trials Research.
