- The aim of the CAG is to promote dedicated Orthoptic services for individuals who have had a stroke or neurological deficit. Our target is to promote specialised assessment, treatment and research for this complex group and for Orthoptists to have a role as part of the multi-disciplinary team in improving a patient’s rehabilitation journey.
For further information on the role of Orthoptists in Stroke Services please read our position statement below.
