Restart a Heart Day is a designated yearly day of action across Europe with the aim to teach vital life-saving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) skills to as many people as possible. In 2017, this took place on 16 October.
2017 was our fourth year bringing young people together up and down the country to learn how to save lives. Restart A Heart Day 2016 saw us partner with the British Heart Foundation, British Red Cross, St John Ambulance and all of UK ambulance services to train an incredible 150,581 young people in life saving CPR in a single day. Although we are still awaiting final numbers for Restart a Heart Day 2017, we are hoping to have surpassed that number this year.
Once again we worked in partnership with key life-saving partners and aimed to deliver training to young people. We also encouraged private first aid training providers to get involved and host events this year.
In order to ensure we’ve got the numbers for all people trained, we are asking those of you who hosted training outside of that planned by an ambulance service to inform us by filling in a short survey with the numbers from your event.
