North Cumbria: Stroke Prevention

A case study from the Building Health Partnerships programme 2018/19 Cohort

This is the case study of North Cumbria STP a Building Health Partnerships (BHP) area. It tells the story of how they worked across sectors in North Cumbria to prevent people from having strokes through raising awareness of risk factors and offering health screening at community events.

Their aim was to develop an initiative shaped by the community and delivered in partnership with patients – ‘community-led and NHS enabled’ – to explore opportunities for both preventing and raising awareness of stroke. They also wanted to learn how to spread this way of working to other geographic areas and for other health conditions across North Cumbria.

This work was supported by the Building Health Partnerships Programme delivered by IVAR and Social Enterprise UK and jointly funded by The National Lottery Community Fund and NHS England and NHS ImprovementClick here for further information and resources.
