The SSNAP acute organisational audit is a snapshot audit which runs on a biennial basis and reports on the structure and organisation of acute stroke services in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The results of the 2021 acute organisational audit contain national and hospital level findings on the organisation of stroke services, in particular acute care organisation, staffing levels and skill mix, provision of stroke treatments, TIA (mini stroke) services, engagement with patients and carers, and pathway at discharge. The results reflect the organisation of stroke services as of 1 October 2021. 100% of eligible hospitals in England, Wales and Northern Ireland participated in the audit.
