Lower your risk of stroke
Know your blood pressure
Get your blood pressure checked and take steps to control it. High blood pressure is a contributing factor in over half of all strokes.
Check your pulse
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a type of irregular heartbeat that can increase your risk of stroke by up to five times.
Don’t ignore symptoms which pass
Treat any stroke symptoms as a medical emergency. Over 25% of people who have a stroke have had a previous stroke or TIA.
