At Pulse Medic Services, community involvement is a key factor in how we teach and interact. Thats why we have teamed up with the British Heart Foundation to run two (community cpr ) Heart Start program. Heartstart schemes are run by people like you. They’re independent of the BHF and provide free ELS training in the community and schools. They are aimed at the public, and anyone from the age of ten upwards can attend and learn the complete range of ELS skills. To date 2.6 million people have been trained through Heartstart.
- Heartstart training free of charge to voluntary/community groups and charities. As part of this scheme we run open lifesaving sessions where anyone can come along.
- emergency life-support training to organisations in the public and private sector at a low cost.
The Heartstart programme (community cpr) includes skills such as:
Assessing an unconscious patient
Performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)
Dealing with choking
Helping someone that may be having a heart attack
Knowing what to do when someone has a cardiac arrest is important. If you can do CPR you can buy the time needed for professional help to arrive and save the life of your loved one. Being able to do CPR more than doubles their chance of survival.
The Heartstart course is designed the course to follow the current Resuscitation Council (UK) guidelines.
The course lasts for two hours and provides practical hands-on learning.

We also support the British Lung foundation, Breathe Easy Groups.
groups provide support and information for people living with a lung condition, and for those who look after them.
Groups hold regular meetings, usually monthly, where people can meet and talk to others, share their experiences and learn from each other. Regular speakers can also share information about living with their condition and coping with the emotional aspects of having a lung condition.
They also raise awareness locally about lung conditions, their group and the BLF.
Every group is different, but many make sure there are lots of opportunity to have fun and socialize – and perhaps have the odd day out.
