What is SSNAP?

The Sentinel Stroke National Audit Programme (SSNAP) is a major national healthcare quality improvement programme based in King’s College London. SSNAP measures the quality and organisation of stroke care in the NHS and is the single source of stroke data in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland.

SSNAP measures the processes of care provided to stroke patients (clinical audit) and structure of stroke services (organisational audit). We review this care against national stroke care standards and guidelines. SSNAP produce reports for hospitals, the Department of Health, the NHS, the general public, and stroke survivors and their carers.   The reports highlight the areas where hospitals are doing well and where they need to improve.  SSNAP has been voted the most effective national clinical audit in the UK for nine consecutive years by healthcare professionals involved in audit.
In the patients, carers & public area of the website, you can find information about the data that SSNAP collects, and SSNAP reporting, research, and governance. As well as links to the Patient Guidelines, groups and organisations involved in stroke care, and further resources with information about stroke care, stroke prevention, and life after stroke.
