The Wessex-Ghana Stroke Partnership has reached the final of the Health Service Journal Annual Awards, International Health Partnership category. The application we submitted has been shortlisted and 3 of the partnership, Louise Johnson, Claire Spice and Liz Cullen, are presenting to the judges on Thursday 12th October. The results will be announced at an award ceremony on 22nd November, so fingers crossed and “good luck” to Louise, Claire and Liz.
The second piece of news is that we are waiting to hear whether we have been successful with a further grant application. The closing date for applications to THET was 1st October, and we expect a response any day, as the one year grant period begins on 1st November 2017. Again, fingers crossed and watch this space!
