On Wednesday, January 16th, I supported Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland’s petition to bring Thrombectomy Operations back to Scotland. Scotland is the only part of the UK where thrombectomy operations, the removal of the blood clot which caused the stroke, are not performed. These are life-saving treatments and the Scottish Government must offer this operation to those in need.
I hope that the efforts of campaigners, researchers, health professionals, politicians and charities will encourage the Scottish Government to act in the patients’ best interest. You too can support #NoLifeHalfLived in Scotland the link, here.
