Act FAST campaign to improve stroke outcomes

New data suggests that people put off seeking help for stroke during the pandemic.

The Act FAST campaign urges everyone to take immediate action on seeing any stroke symptoms to save lives.  Data from the lockdown period of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic last year show that admissions to hospital for stroke fell – a 12% drop between March and April 2020.
