FAST Stroke Action

Public Health England and the Stroke Association are urging the public to Act FAST if they spot signs of stroke with the aim of saving lives and improving outcomes for survivors.

The latest Act FAST campaign will again urge the public to call 999 if they notice any of the stroke symptoms in others or experience them themselves.

The Act FAST campaign message is:

F ace – has their face fallen on one side? Can they smile?
A rms – can they raise both their arms and keep them there?
S peech – is their speech slurred?
T ime – time to call 999
