Welcome to all of those involved with the management of patients with Stroke. I hope you find it of interest. This website was developed in response to the hyperacute stroke course I run at the University of Hertfordshire. What you see is just a snapshot of the ongoing work - there is a great deal more to be done. Bookmark the page and please come back again.

If you have any comments or would like to donate images or any other teaching material then please contact me. I have based the content broadly on the Stroke and Vascular Fellowship curriculum. Email: drokane at
