70 years of the NHS: from cradle to grave

#Keeptothebeat mentioned in The Herald 70 years of the NHS!

“A team of nurses from NHS Lanarkshire have been devoting their own time to teaching life-saving resuscitation skills to schoolchildren.

Known as ‘Team Wishaw ED’, the group is made up of staff nurse Caroline Casey, charge nurse Fiona Torrance, charge nurse Michelle Graham and staff nurse Fiona Macpherson, who all work in Wishaw General’s emergency department, and staff nurse Laura Gillies, who works in the hospital’s coronary care unit.

The nurses launched their project in April 2017 and have been visiting Lanarkshire schools ever since, training youngsters in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) by using their favourite teddy bears as ‘patients’.

In 2017, they trained more than 1700 school pupils in the technique.”
