The Rotary Club of Oundle introduced the British Heart Foundation’s Heartstart scheme to Oundle and District in 2011 and to date have provided more than 60 Emergency Life Support training sessions to the citizens of the Town.
Training sessions are free, last for 2 hours and provide instruction in the simple yet vital skills needed to provide assistance to casualties suffering from, for example, sudden collapse, heart attack, cardiac arrest, choking or severe bleeding. You may be able to save a life while you wait for the Emergency Services to arrive.
The sessions are held at the Oundle Medical Practice. The next sessions are on Saturdays, 20th January, 17th February and 17th March, each at 9.00am to 11.00am.
Come and learn how to save a life. Contact Trevor Brant or Alan Williamson, or register at the Oundle Medical Practice.
We are also available to provide training at other venues, particularly where a defibrulator has been or is going to be installed in the near future. We have recently provided courses to staff at the Prince William School, Oundle, Haddon Village members and Oundle Wharf workers.
