Every day it gets worse. Now, stroke victims are not being treated properly. From the story:
Thousands of stroke victims die every year because they are not given life-saving drugs swiftly enough. Almost a third of stroke patients die within one month, a figure that could be cut if clot-fighting drugs were given earlier, say researchers. Studies show treatment within three hours greatly improves the chances of survival for more than six months. In 2006, only 30 NHS trusts across Britain administered the drugs within three hours

How hard can it be to provide clot fighting drugs???? And forgive me if I think this is because stroke victims tend to be elderly. Can you imagine if something like this happened in the USA? The screaming would never stop.
