Restart a Heart Day 2017


Is your school taking part in this year’s Restart a Heart Day?

On Monday 16 October 2017, thousands of young people around the UK will be given the opportunity to learn how to help restart the heart of someone who has suffered a cardiac arrest.
The aim is to train more than 150,000 young people how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on that day.

Currently in the UK, less than one in ten people (8.6%) survive a cardiac arrest.
We want to work with you to change this; if we achieved the same survival rates (25%) as found in parts of Norway where CPR is taught in schools, an additional 100 lives could be saved each week – the equivalent of approximately 5,000 every year. You can help to achieve this.


Please contact Mia on 01744 677675 or email miakerkhof@sthelens.gov.uk for more information and to register your school.
