Data from the Sentinel Stroke National Audit Programme for the year April 2017 to March 2018 (which covers England, Wales and Northern Ireland) shows that 83.8% of patients spend at least 90% of their hospital stay on a specialist stroke unit, all of which provide coordinated multidisciplinary care and rehabilitation and that almost everyone with a stroke disability received in-patient therapy assessment.
