Stroke strikes every 5 minutes in the UK. It can happen to anyone, of any age, at any time.
Every second counts when you are having a stroke. Would you know how to do the FAST test?
- Face: facial weakness
- Arms: arm weakness
- Speech: slurred speech
- Time: to call 999 if you spot any one of these signs.
A stroke is a medical emergency. Always dial 999. The quicker the person arrives at a specialist stroke unit, the quicker they will receive appropriate treatment.
We want as many people as possible to know the FAST test and be able to recognise a stroke.
