Associate Professor, Neurology, (view Academic Profile)

"A stroke is a time dependent emergency. That means the sooner the treatment the better the outcome is going to be. I think it is unacceptable that the outcome of a patient who had a stroke depends on where they live or where they happen to be when the stroke occurs."
