South London Stroke Register on BBC Radio 4's Inside Health
Posted on 17/06/2015
The high quality data from the South London Stroke Register was cited in a discussion on BBC Radio 4’s 'Inside Health' about controversy surrounding the claimed rising incidence of stroke in younger people – Listen online from 05:42 (09/06/15).
The broadcast mentioned that the SLSR found that stroke risk has been falling in almost all age groups, with the exception of black and younger people – although it isn’t rising either. This stems from a piece by Prof Tony Rudd, Professor of Stroke Medicine in HSCR, on this topic on BBC Radio 4’s 'More of Less' last month – Listen online from 00:51 (17/05/15).
