£12m stroke ad campaign plan

5th December 2008

The government is to launch a £12m awareness campaign in the new year to help people remember what the first symptoms of stroke are.

Posters and leaflets will be placed in GP surgeries, village halls and libraries telling people how a stroke affects the face, arms and speech. There will also be a TV and radio campaign. It is part of the government's three-year £100m stroke strategy in England which was published last year and follows criticism that stroke care in this country falls behind other European states.
