In our new advert, survivors describe experiencing life changing strokes in their own words. Stroke is serious, but it doesn’t have to be a life sentence. Recovery is tough but with the right specialist support and a ton of courage and determination, it is possible. Together we can support stroke survivors in rebuilding their lives.
Blood pressure is the force that blood puts on the walls of your arteries when it is pumped around your body by your heart.
High blood pressure puts a strain on all the blood vessels in your body. This makes a blockage more likely to develop and move, or a blood vessel in the brain weaken and bleed, both could cause a stroke.
