Stroke affects one in six people, with 30 per cent of them under 65. Two thirds of stroke patients don’t get stroke unit care, nearly half leave hospital without a care plan and one third without prevention medication.
I’ve asked the Minister for Health about advocating for a national stroke strategy, funding the StrokeConnect program, promoting the Face, Arms, Speech, Time (FAST) campaign for community awareness of early stroke signs and a help line for survivors and carers.
