Restart a Heart Day

Shauna Healy

European Restart a Heart Day is scheduled for Friday 16th October 2020, this is an initiative to train people in how to perform CPR . In light of COVID-19, the steps you should take when performing CPR have changed - but the need to perform CPR has not.

Out of hospital cardiac arrests are still happening across the UK, and by learning and performing CPR, you could be the difference between life and death for a loved one at home, a colleague at work, or a stranger in the street.

This year, we’re asking you to learn and teach CPR digitally with the online resources listed below, so we can all be prepared to help someone in cardiac arrest.

Whether you’ve learnt CPR before or this is your first time, this is an opportunity to learn how CPR guidance has changed during COVID-19. Please follow the link below and if you have any queries please feel free to contact us at resuscitation.bookings@westerntrust.hscni.net or Altnagelvin extension 213901
