Stroke

Stroke is the third largest cause of death in England.

A stroke could happen to anyone at any time and is caused by either a block in a blood vessel that leads to the brain or by bleeding in or around the brain. Following a stroke some people recover completely, others need rehabilitation and further support, but others do not survive.

Organisations across Lancashire and South Cumbria are working together to improve stroke services. Use the links below to explore some specific projects.
