My name's Robert. Two years ago I had a severe stroke. It took my ability to move easily and to talk. I was lucky enough to receive a Thrombectomy - without it things could have been so much worse.
Thrombectomy is a specialised treatment which physically removes the blood clot from the brain. It isn't suitable for everyone after a stroke, but around 600 people a year in Scotland could benefit if it was available, improving their chances of living without disability.
The limited Thrombectomy service in Scotland was withdrawn last year. I need your help to make sure that this life-changing treatment is offered to everyone in Scotland who needs one.
Please email your MSPs asking them to write to the Cabinet Secretary for Health Jeane Freeman about how important a thrombectomy service is to hundreds of stroke survivors. It takes just a minute of your time but could help make all the difference.
600 people with stroke could miss out on their best chance of recovery this year because they can't get a Thrombectomy in Scotland. It's time that people get access to this life-changing treatment as soon as possible.
Thank you for your help.
