Reading to Stroke Patients

The 'InterAct' Reading Service provides a reading service for stroke patients on stroke wards.

"You've woken my mind up..."
Robin, The National Hospital

Patients said that being read to by an actor and having the chance to chat with the actor was a welcome relief from the monotony and isolation of being in hospital for a long time.

'InterAct' is reading in 15 stroke units in London hospitals and in 7 regional hospitals
