Abstract

Health professionals fail too often to take transient ischaemic attacks seriously, as personal experience showed Sally Jarvis

SUMMARY

When nurse Sally Jarvis had a transient ischaemic attack (TIA) she was advised to book an appointment with her GP the following week. Instead, she sought immediate treatment which may have prevented her from having a stroke. She argues that health professionals must spot the signs of TIA and treat it as an emergency.
