Patients with a primary diagnosis of stroke coded as I61, I63 or I64 should be added onto SSNAP. Additionally, any patient who follows the stroke care pathway should be included on SSNAP. If a patient has a serious co-morbidity that would prevent them from following the stroke care pathway, these patients should be excluded from the SSNAP dataset.
The minimum age for patient submission to SSNAP is 16.
Patient had the stroke up to 28 days before presenting to Hospital (more than 28 days, excluded).
