Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria Lauch an Interactive Stroke Information Guide - 20 February 2018

Click here

The Stroke Information Guide is a useful information tool for healthcare workers, patients and carers and will support the Act F.A.S.T campaign launched by Public Health England at the beginning of February.

A stroke could happen to anyone at any time and is caused by either a block in a blood vessel that leads to the brain or by bleeding in or around the brain. Following a stroke some people recover completely, others need rehabilitation and further support, but others do not survive.

Organisations across Lancashire and South Cumbria have worked together to create an easy to understand Stroke Information Guide to provide access to good quality, appropriate information for professionals, stroke patients, their families and carers and anyone affected by stroke.

The information within the guide aims to be useful to aid recovery and prevent an initial or further stroke.

The guide was created with the involvement of health and care professionals, local people, stroke survivors and their carers and relatives.
