Access to intravenous thrombolysis and endovascular treatment vary significantly, according to the survey conducted by a range of organisations including the European Stroke Organisation and the European Academy of Neurology.

The survey found the UK lagging behind many other wealthy countries in Scandinavia and northern Europe in its provision of stroke care.

The researchers say the UK has adequate stroke units and access to intravenous thrombolysis – but lacks comprehensive stroke centres.

Across Europe, 226,662 extra patients a year could get intravenous thrombolysis and 67,347 could have endovascular treatments, the researchers say.
