Every year over 3,000 people around Scotland are treated by the Ambulance Service after having a cardiac arrest. Unfortunately only around 1 in 10 people will survive.
Starting CPR can at least double the chances of survival. We all have the power to make a difference. You can learn from home or in a face to face setting, it’s up to you. By taking the time to learn these skills you could save a life one day. So will you become one of the million people learning how to Save a Life for Scotland? Yes, I’ll do it!
