To examine the current provision of stroke risk reduction services and the effectiveness of Welsh Government policies in addressing any weaknesses in these services, including:

  • identifying those areas where there are particular problems in the implementation and delivery of stroke risk reduction actions;
  • considering the evidence for an atrial fibrillation screening programme being launched in Wales.
