West Norfolk Stroke Prevention Service

If you've already had a stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA or mini-stroke), or if you've been told that you may be at high risk of stroke, The Stroke Association is here to help.

Our coordinators will help you reduce your risk of stroke by working intensively with you to plan realistic lifestyle changes - such as giving up smoking, taking gentle exercise or eating less salt.

What the service offers

  • One-to-one sessions to identify and explain your stroke risk factors
  • Support for you in making positive lifestyle changes which can help reduce your risk of stroke
  • Regular exercise and lifestyle groups
  • Support from trained volunteers
  • Friendship networks
  • Opportunity to regain confidence
  • We can refer you to other organissations that can also help
  • We provide a complementary and personally tailored service. Our coordinators don't replace the advice of health professionals

This service is for people who live in West Norfolk.
