Stroke Recognition


Stroke destroys two million brain cells every minute so TIME IS BRAIN. If you suspect that someone is having a stroke call 999 or 112 immediately.

When stroke strikes,  act F.A.S.T.

The F.A.S.T. acronym was created as a simple way for people to remember the main warning signs of stroke so that they can act immediately in the case of a stroke by dialling 999 or 112.

F.A.S.T. stands for:

F – Face – has their face fallen on one side? Can they smile?
A – Arms – Can they raise both arms and keep them there?
S – Speech – is their speech slurred?
T –Time to call 999 if you spot any single one of these signs.

F.A.S.T. can help you to rapidly recognise when a stroke is taking place and then act quickly to get medical treatment and prevent serious damage.
