Stroke Unit at Northwick Park Hospital Wins Top Award

nhs_hospital-150x150The Stroke Unit at Northwick Park Hospital has been awarded the title Clinical Research Site of the Year in the National Stroke Research Network Awards.

Competing against 21 other hospitals, the unit impressed the panel of judges with the involvement of therapists, as well as nurses and doctors, in active research. The unit recruits large numbers of patients for trials that also impressed the judges.

Stroke consultant Dr Devine said: “We are delighted to have received this award. When the unit was opened in 2010, staff across all clinical disciplines, whether junior or senior, were encouraged to be involved in research and it is their involvement and hard work that has been recognised in this award. It is a real credit to the whole team.”
