Stroke Forum announces official links to BJC

The British Journal of Cardiology will be one of the official journals of this year’s UK Stroke Forum, which will be held 3 to 5 December, at the Harrogate International Centre.

UKSF Chair Professor Tom Robinson said: “We are delighted to welcome the British Journal of Cardiology as one of the official journals of the UK Stroke Forum. We value its commitment to improving awareness of stroke and stroke prevention in both primary and secondary care and look forward to a successful partnership”.

“I firmly believe in the benefits of collaboration across disciplines and disease areas related to stroke research. The UK Stroke Forum is a coalition of over 30 stroke care organisations committed to improving stroke care in the UK. As Europe’s largest multidisciplinary stroke meeting, the UK Stroke Forum Conference attracts key decision makers, leading researchers and staff working on the frontline to debate key issues, be briefed on major new trials results, and, above all, to develop new collaborations to benefit stroke survivors,” he added.
