Staff to teach CPR in Watford

 Published on: 12th October 2018   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

Staff from West Herts Hospital Trust will be teaching CPR to members of the public next week. 

The trust will take to the INTU shopping centre on Tuesday, October 16 for Restart A Heart Day which aims to teach vital life-saving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) skills to as many people as possible.

It is thought players from Watford FC will to show their support for the scheme.

People who suffer an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in the UK currently have less than a one in ten chance of surviving. Last year 195,000 people were trained in life saving skills across the UK on Restart a Heart Day. 

Michelle East, Resuscitation Officer at Watford General Hospital said: “Anyone can learn the 3 simple steps which can SAVE a life – 1.CHECK, 2. CALL, 3. COMPRESS. 

“You never know when you might need to use CPR so we’re encouraging as many people as possible to come down to learn as possible.”
