Stroke Survey results

14 February 2013

In January, LOCSU asked people across the whole optical sector to complete a survey to find out the number of contractors who routinely see stroke patients in their practices and whether there was any support for a LOCSU pathway, focused on the rehabilitation of people who have experienced a stroke. Thank you to all who responded. 

The results reveal that out of 151 responses we received:

  • more than 85% of practitioners routinely examine stroke patients within their practice
  • more than 70% of practitioners would want to participate in any future LOCSU pathway/enhanced service

The results will be used as part of the Optical Confederation response to NICE consultation on the second guideline for people who have suffered a stroke. 

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact
