The Scottish Stroke Care Audit (SSCA) was established in 2002 and now includes all hospitals managing acute stroke in Scotland. SSCA is a national audit within the Quality Improvement Programme at ISD (Information Services Division of National Services Scotland) and is involved in checking the quality of stroke care delivered in these hospitals. Since its inception SSCA has helped to drive the improvements in stroke care which have contributed to the reduction in mortality rates and improved outcomes for stroke patients. The audit is now an integral support for the care provided by every Scottish NHS Board. The NHS Boards use the audit to evaluate their stroke care against National Standards and Targets and to drive improvements.
