Abstract The current guidelines of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) on the management of acute stroke, published in 2008 and updated in 2017, make it clear that, when acute stroke is suspected, rapid assessment and intervention are critical to limit the risk of death and long-term disability. This article - the fourth in our five-part series on stroke - takes us through the NICE recommendations regarding the immediate treatment of acute stroke and transient ischaemic attack.
