If you or someone else experiences the signs of stroke, no matter how long they last, call 112 immediately. Stroke is always a medical emergency.
Getting fast treatment for stroke can be the difference between death, disability and a good recovery. Call 112 and warn them it is a possible stroke when the ambulance is sent.
TREATMENT FOR STROKE IN STROKE UNITS
Care on a stroke unit is one of the most effective ways of treating a person after a stroke. A stroke unit is an area in a hospital where there is a specialized stroke team.
Unfortunately not all hospitals in Ghana have a specialized stroke unit, so you may be treated in a general hospital ward.
