Act F.A.S.T at any sign of a stroke

The local NHS is calling for everyone to make sure they know the signs of stroke and how to act F.A.S.T. if you notice any of them in yourself or a loved one.

  • Face – has their face fallen on one side? Can they smile?
  • Arms – can they raise both arms and keep them there?
  • Speech – is their speech slurred?
  • Time to call 999.
