What's the strategy

Every year over 3,500 people around Scotland are treated by the Ambulance Service after having a cardiac arrest. Unfortunately only around 1 in 20 people will survive.

Starting CPR saves lives... at least doubling the chances of survival.

So let’s be ready. We’re asking you to say ‘I’ll do it’ and be one of 500,000 people in Scotland getting trained in CPR.
