Save a Life for Scotland

Every year over 3,500 people around Scotland are treated by the Ambulance Service after having a cardiac arrest. Unfortunately only around 1 in 12 people will survive.

Starting CPR saves lives.

Doing CPR can at least double the chances of survival. So let’s be ready. We’ve asked you to say ‘I’ll do it’ and be one of 500,000 people in Scotland to get CPR ready. Together we have reached our goal, a whole year early! This is an amazing accomplishment but the Save a Life for Scotland partnership is not slowing down as we enter our last year!
