Just shows anyone can have a stroke

Hi Bobbi
I came across an NHS document for pain management which used stroke association data from 2013.
That SA data indicated 142,000 a year with 92,000 survivors or one every 3.7 seconds.
Google also suggests higher recent UK figures, 136,000 in 21/22.

The 100,000 figure is widely used, it appeared for UK stroke day. No one seems to be able to agree on exactly how many there are.

30% of survivors are thought to make a full recovery. I didn’t expect that high figure. 60,000 people are left disabled each year.

The GOV web pages from 2018 suggest 1 in 6 people will have a stroke in their lifetime. Other sites suggesting 1 in 4. Is this due to increased life expectancy…

Regrettably many more will join us…
Cheers
Nige
