An ischaemic stroke happens when a blood clot, or other blockage, cuts off the blood supply to your brain. This is the most common type of stroke.
During February and March pharmacies across Wales are joining the Lower Your Risk of Stroke campaign, a partnership between Community Pharmacy Wales, Public Health Wales and the Stroke Association.
