Stroke campaign 'saved 4,000 from serious disability'
A campaign to publicise stroke symptoms saved 4,000 people from long-term disabilities, according to Public Health England.
The Act Fast campaign highlighted the fact that problems with speech and weakness in the face and arms should prompt a call to 999.
But PHE says 10,000 more strokes could be prevented each year if mini-strokes were spotted and treated in time.
