A doctor has been shortlisted for a national award for the work he has done with stroke patients.

Dr Sreeman Andole, based at Queen’s Hospital, Romford, works for the Hyper Acute Stroke Unit which is now rated in the top 25 per cent in England.

The unit treats about 1,000 new stroke patients a year and has saved more than 80 lives since it opened in 2010.

Dr Andole said: “We have made remarkable progress over the past few years and this would not have been possible without the dedication of our staff who have performed above and beyond expectations.”

He has been put forward for the Clinical Leader of the Year at the Health Service Journal Awards 2013. The winner will be announced next month.
