Stroke re-enacted in new Delaney Lund Knox Warren & Partners NHS ad

LONDON - Delaney Lund Knox Warren & Partners has launched a new campaign for the NHS warning of the need to act fast if you spot the signs of a person suffering a stroke.

The ad centres on the acronym F.A.S.T, to highlight the signs to look out for in stroke victims.

The 60-second spot depicts a woman suffering from a stroke using the visual metaphor of a fire spreading through her brain, while explaining that changes to a person's "face", "arms" and "speech" signal that it is "time" to call 999.

Online and press activity supports the TV campaign, in a bid to reduce the harm caused by strokes – currently the third leading cause of death and the largest cause of adult disability in England.
