Stroke Risk Test

Stroke Risk Test

Find out your risk of developing a stroke in the next 10 years.

The calculator estimates your risk using information from a well-known US study called the Framingham Heart Study. You will need to know your systolic blood pressure (the higher of the 2 blood pressure readings).

Note that this tool:

  • is not suitable for people who have already suffered a stroke; and
  • is only suitable for people aged 55 to 84.
