3 P-05-763 Introduce updated stroke advice - B.E.F.A.S.T. - and help save lives and livelihoods
The Committee considered correspondence from the Stroke Association together with further comments from the petitioner and agreed to:
· write to the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Services to ask whether he considers that there are any additional steps which could be taken by the Welsh Government or the Stroke Implementation Group to ensure that health professionals are aware of the additional symptoms of strokes, such as problems with eyesight and balance; and in doing so
· close the petition, given the advice provided by the Stroke Association and the view of the Stroke Implementation Group that there is limited evidence to support changing current messaging around stroke symptoms, and communicating the Committee’s thanks to the petitioner for contributing to a useful discussion on this issue.
