    Semi structured interviews will involve gaining patients opinions on the strengths and weaknesses of On-Track

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Feasibility of On-Track to therapists assessed by semi structured interviews [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

  4. Motor Assessment Log (MAL) - questionnaire [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    MAL - ask patients questions on their opinion about how much and how well they are using their stroke affected arm

  5. Visual Analogue Scale for pain - question [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Ask patients to rate their arm pain on a scale of 0-10

  6. Friends and Family test = a question [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Asks patient if they would recommend the service they have just received to friends/family
