The ESO Angels Steering Committee has been mandated by the ESO Executive Committee to establish the ESO Angels Awards project. The ESO Angels Steering Committee is responsible for the overview of the process and the evaluation of achievements according to specific criteria.

The results of the achievements of the hospital in each of the award criteria will be sent quarterly to the ESO Head Office and for verification of the national coordinators and final approval to the ESO Angels Award Committee.

The aim of the ESO Angels Awards is to increase the numbers of patients treated in stroke ready hospitals and to optimise the quality of treatment in all existing stroke centres.
