The Life Insurance Market
Stroke victims may be able to save on their critical illness cover if a drug trial is rolled out nationwide.
Doctors at Cardiff's University Hospital of Wales are now offering a round-the-clock service to issue clot-busting drugs, rather than just when a specialist was on hand to give them out.
Consultants at the hospital hope that the new service will make a huge difference by increasing survival rates and reducing the likelihood of disabilities being suffered afterwards.
As well as potentially saving money on critical illness cover, it is hoped that the service will save the NHS money, as it's much cheaper than the cost of providing aftercare to people who have suffered long-term damage after suffering a stroke.
