A stroke is a serious, life-threatening medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off, caused by either a clot or a bleed. In the UK, strokes are a major health problem, with someone suffering a stroke every five minutes. It is the third largest cause of death, after heart disease and cancer. The brain injuries caused by strokes are a major cause of adult disability in the UK.
