Some hospitals in Lancashire and South Cumbria are experiencing a reduction in people attending with symptoms of a stroke.

Doctors, Nurses, former Stroke Survivors and their carers are worried that people are not acting on the signs of a stroke quick enough and want to therefore reassure patients.

Together they are encouraging people to recognize the main signs of stroke and dial 999. A stroke is a serious life-threatening condition that happens when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. A stroke often results in people being taken by ambulance to A&E for emergency treatment.
