When Stroke Strikes, Act FAST

Stroke is a time-sensitive condition – any delay in getting treatment impacts a patient’s health outcomes. If you or someone you know experiences any of the symptoms of stroke, then call 999 urgently.

Think and act FAST - the signs of stroke are:

  • Face – has their face fallen on one side? Can they smile?
  • Arms – can they raise both their arms and keep them there?
  • Speech – is their speech slurred?
  • Time – it’s time to call 999 if you see any of these signs or symptoms.
