Go to the closest stroke unit or hospital emergency department
Stroke units have correct procedures and specialised clot busting medication available to diagnose the type of stroke and dissolve blood clots that stop blood flow to the brain. If you can reach a hospital with a stroke unit within 3 hours of the start of the stroke, go straight to that hospital as quickly as possible.

If your life is in immediate danger rather go to the nearest emergency hospital department. If you live too far away from a stroke unit, go to the nearest emergency hospital department
