Stroke is a ‘brain attack’. It deprives the brain of vital oxygen, damaging nerve cells and accounting for thousands of deaths each year. Patients who survive their first stroke (estimated at more than 100,000 per year) typically emerge with paralysis and speech impairments, bringing personal suffering and a cost estimated at £4.5 billion per annum.
