Heartstart in Thatcham?
A group is being established to bring the Heartstart programme, co-ordinated by the British Heart Foundation, to the community of Thatcham (& further). Not heard of it, then take a look at the booklet about it here. I am looking at the interest in terms of people who would like to take the course and those who would like to be involved in running and delivering the course (doctors, nurses, first responders, etc.).
If you are a medic (doctor, nurse, paramedic, first responder, resucitation trainer, etc.) I would very much like to hear from you (see my contact page) if you would like to get involved. There will be a meeting shortly to organise things and get a group OFFICIALLY running.
If you would like to know more, show your support and/or register an interest, come along and talk to me/us at the Thatcham Volunteer Fair on 16th March 2013, 10 a.m. til 3 p.m. at the Catholic Hall, Bath Road, Thatcham. If you cannot wait them drop me an email on my contact page. From this it is hoped that a group can be officially formed and affiliated with the British Heart Foundation after which courses can start.
Just think, would you know what to do if someone collapsed in front of you?
