A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is interrupted by a blockage in the blood supply or when there is a hemorrhage due to a burst blood vessel.
If a patient has suffered or is suffering a stroke, they may experience weakness or paralysis in an arm and or leg, difficulty speaking, lost vision in part of the visual field or complain of numbness and / or tingling down one side of the body. It is imperative to seek urgent medical advice if any one of these events occur by dialing 16010
