The WSNF is led by a steering committee. The steering committee aims to be representative of each Health Board in Wales and all aspects of stroke nursing.Steering committee members include staff nurses, stroke unit managers, research nurses and specialist nurses. The steering committee meets three times a year, of which one meeting is an Annual General Meeting (AGM) open to all stroke nurses in Wales. Our next AGM is will be held at the Welsh Stroke Conference in 2017.
