Saving Brains 

Thrombectomy saves brains, saves money and changes lives, so why do so many stroke patients miss out? If you agree that Saving Brains is vital, support our campaign.

The difference
The majority of people who could have a thrombectomy miss out completely because of where they live or when they have their stroke.
