About us

The WSC is Wales’s largest multidisciplinary conference for stroke healthcare and other professionals. Our aim is to provide opportunities for everyone to come together so they can learn from each other, share ideas and ultimately improve standards of care for stroke survivors.

Benefits of attending WSC
Whether the WSC is virtual or in person, it has always attracted world-class speakers and leading physicians. In 2023, we were delighted to be joined by Professor Dame Caroline Watkins from the University of Central Lancashire.

As always, each year will give delegates the opportunity to:

  • Gain relevant CPD accredited professional training
  • Discover the latest research and service developments with exciting lectures, parallel sessions and a highly useful research half day
  • Showcase your work by submitting an abstract/poster for presentation at the event

Our conference aims to:

  • Provide robust evidence-based learning
  • Improve service delivery
  • Further attendees’ overall knowledge and understanding of current local and international research and practice in care and management of stroke patients.
  • Improve attendees’ skills in the treatment and care of stroke survivors
  • Inspire attendees to achieve personal excellence in care of stroke survivors
  • Take away new developments and ideas to progress their workplace services to stroke survivors
  • Ultimately improve stroke survivors’ clinical outcomes

Our audience
The Welsh Stroke Conference encourages healthcare professionals from all disciplines and academics connected with stroke care in Wales and further afield in England, Scotland and abroad to attend. This includes the doctors, nurses and all the allied health professionals. We encourage staff of all grades to attend and benefit from the excellent programs developed each year.
