Jon Barrick, the chief executive of the Stroke Association said that having a stroke can leave survivors and families "shocked, shaken and anxious" as their lives are often changed in an instant.
There are over one million stroke survivors living in the UK and with an ageing population this figure is only set to increase.
Better recognition by health and social care professionals of the impact of stroke will help people to be properly assessed and get the right support.
