We were delighted to welcome junior doctors from Royal Preston Hospital into school on Thursday 7th November 2019 to deliver an NHS programme designed to teach CPR to young people. The programme is a nationwide initiative developed after studies showed that countries that teach CPR to students have a higher reported rate of survival after cardiac arrest. The junior doctors from RPH were keen to share the knowledge of how to perform CPR with local pupils. The sixty minute session was delivered to a GCSE PE class free of charge. Pupils came away from the session with the knowledge and understanding of basic life support skills. Thank-you to the doctors who came into school to share this invaluable and potentially life saving knowledge.
Further information regarding CPR training for schools can be found on the British Heart Foundation website.
