Speaking of his OBE, Professor Wolfe said:
‘I am delighted that stroke and public health have been recognized in this award. These are areas I am passionate about, as are the teams I work with who have contributed significantly to this success. As more people survive stroke the burden of care and support is increasing. There remain many challenges to finding and designing more effective ways of preventing stroke and our research will continue to work towards improving the health and wellbeing of patients and stroke survivors.’
