This report summarises what people have told us about transient ischaemic attack (TIA), and what we recommend to improve things.

Every year at least 46,000 people in the UK have a TIA (also known as mini-stroke) for the first time. Although the symptoms may not last long, a TIA is still very serious. It’s a sign that a person is at risk of going on to have a stroke. That is why a TIA is often called a warning stroke yet too many people are unaware of the link between TIA and stroke and are not getting the services and support they need.
