On 15 May 2019, the RC (UK)’s Policy Officer Rachel Warren and Lead Educator Kevin Mackie visited the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh to attend a roundtable meeting on first aid hosted by Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP.
The RC (UK) was invited to share our expertise after our recent submission to the Scottish Parliament Petitions Committee on Public Access Defibrillation (PAD).
We had a productive discussion on first aid awareness with the other invited organisations, including several training providers and some of our Restart a Heart campaign partners.
As a result, we are pleased to have been invited to join a working group to develop a first aid strategy for Scotland, and we are looking forward to returning to Edinburgh for further discussions in the Autumn. We will update this page with further news as this work develops.
