What is National Restart A Heart Day?

Every 3 minutes, someone in the UK is struck by a heart attack. Around 30% of heart attacks are fatal.

These figures are shocking and whilst there are many National Days and Months for various causes, Restart a Heart Day is perhaps one of the most important.

This annual event aims to train as many people as possible in CPR in one day, so that more people know these lifesaving skills and can put them into practise if they need to.

This day is a joint initiative between the Resuscitation Council (UK) along with the British Heart Foundation, British Red Cross, St John Ambulance and Yorkshire Ambulance Service with the aim of increasing awareness of the importance of bystander CPR.

Below is a video made by the Swanstaff Training Team on how to perform CPR. It will only take a minute to watch and it could help you save a life!

Of course it may not be an adult needing CPR, that's why we also have a video on how to perform Infant CPR. You can find that here.

Swanstaff Training offer the following courses which include CPR Training:
