Petition The UK Needs More Lifesavers, fund CPR training in schools

As a Sudden Cardiac Arrest Survivor I know only too well the importance of bystander CPR. There are 60,000 out of hospital cardiac arrests each year, yet 75% of the population are NOT trained to do basic CPR. Evidence suggests immediate resuscitation will triple chances of survival.

More details

#CPR in schools is a national prize-winning programme for trainee healthcare professionals from all disciplines to teach Basic Life Support Skills to children in schools across the country:

*Teaching children life-saving skills.
*Inspiring children to have careers in the NHS.

This petition calls on the government to fund a national programme of training in CPR in schools.
