Free CPR Training in Collaboration with the British Heart Foundation

posted Aug 21, 2017, 1:10 AM by Rebecca Barker

Liverpool Social Care Partnership, in collaboration with the British Heart Foundation, are offering 150 FREE places (25 per session) to learn CPR, this is a lifesaving skill.

Survival rates from out of hospital cardiac arrest remain stubbornly low in the UK, with fewer than one in ten people surviving. The British Heart Foundation (BHF) estimate that up to 5,000 more lives could be saved every year if CPR was taught more widely. In fact, when someone suffers a cardiac arrest, their chance of survival can double if a bystander immediately performs CPR.

All individuals who attend this training will be able to;

  •          Recognise a heart attack and cardiac arrest
  •          Help an unconscious person
  •          Perform CPR
  •          Help someone choking
  •          Respond to serious bleeding

The training will include Adult C.P.R, Child C.P.R. information about defibrillator usage and the recovery position and an opportunity to ask questions. All participants will receive a certificate after successfully completing the session, the certificate will remain valid for 2 years.
