This year’s World Stroke Day (Saturday 29th October) coincides with the 13th anniversary of Public Health England’s (PHE) Act FAST campaign launch.
To mark this moment of the campaign becoming a teenager we carried out a UK-wide survey of 1,000 teenagers (aged 13-19) and their parents.
The survey revealed that awareness of stroke and the FAST test is low amongst teenagers and their parents. Over half (54%) of UK teenagers unaware of the FAST acronym.
