We’re doing all we can to protect stroke survivors and their families, our staff and volunteers during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. To avoid putting people at risk, we have taken the decision to cancel all prevention events, including blood pressure testing.

New event registrations

At present, we won’t be registering any new prevention events. You can find out more about blood pressure by visiting our prevention webpages or viewing our prevention publications.

Stroke Prevention Day

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Stroke Prevention Day is postponed until 2021. We will update this page with further information when a new date has been confirmed.


We are monitoring the coronavirus situation and will update this page as further decisions are made.

If you have any questions, you can contact our Stroke Prevention Team by email strokeprevention@stroke.org.uk

If you are a stroke survivor and are worried about coronavirus, you can follow our updates on our website.

Our online self-management tool, My Stroke Guide, lets you speak to other people online. If you want to talk to someone, please call our Helpline on 0303 3033 100.
