Professor Gillian Mead, a geriatrition, has been announced as President Elect of the British Association of Stroke Physicians (BASP) for 2020-2021. Professor Mead clinical work has, for many years, included both acute stroke and rehabilitation. More recently she managed to set up a ‘life after stroke clinic’. She said in a recent interview that she is acutely aware of the challenges of implementing new evidence (especially thrombectomy) in already busy stroke services, and the need to ensure that we have sufficient workforce to deliver world-class stroke care in the UK.
