The FAST test can help you to recognise some of the most common symptoms of stroke:
Can the person smile? Has their face fallen on one side?
Can the person raise both arms and keep them there?
Can the person speak clearly and understand what you say? Is their speech slurred?
If a person fails any one of these tests, get help immediately by dialling 999.
A stroke is a medical emergency.
If you, or someone else, show any signs of having a stroke you need to seek immediate medical attention.
