Act F.A.S.T. Stroke Campaign

The Act F.A.S.T. campaign raises awareness for the signs of stroke and reinforces the importance of acting F.A.S.T. and calling 999 if you  notice any single one of the signs in yourself or others. The F.A.S.T. acronym is a simple test to help people identify the most common signs of a stroke  and emphasises the importance of acting quickly by calling 999.

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
