What is a stroke?

A person experiences a stroke when the blood supply in the brain is cut off due to a clot or haemorrhage, resulting in weakness or paralysis in a limb, difficulty speaking, loss of vision, numbness and/or tingling down one side of the body.  A person may also experience a mini-stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA), where the interruption to the blood supply is temporary.  If these signs disappear quickly, the patient should still be assessed urgently by a GP or taken to accident and emergency.

What should I do if someone has a stroke?

It is essential that any patient with a suspected stroke be admitted to an accident and emergency department initially by calling 999.  This is so that anti-blood clotting medication can be administered (thrombolysis).  Following this treatment urgent admission to the Stroke Unit can be arranged.
