On our first aid courses we are often asked about first aid and medical situations which may occur at work or at home. One of the topics which frequently comes up is the subject of someone having a stroke. This isn’t that surprising when you consider 150,000 people each year have a stroke. As the Stroke Association’s website states, that equals one person ever five minutes. Whilst we cover subjects like this when raised on our workplace first aid courses, we also point people towards relevant resources for information. In this case the obvious resource is the website of the Stroke Association. Here you can find a wide range of information and sources for further help and assistance.
