Stroke awareness day hosted by UHK

Members of the public are being invited to a stroke awareness day in Tralee tomorrow.

University Hospital Kerry will host the awareness day where a new stroke protocol will be launched in the Emergency Department.

The protocol involves FAST, a recognition system that is aimed to help the public achieve a better understanding of the warning signs for a stroke.

The launch will be spearheaded by the Stroke Steering Committee in the UHK canteen from one o clock tomorrow afternoon.
