Restart a Heart Day

Today is ‘Restart a Heart Day’
Did you know that 1 in 10 people survive cardiac arrest?

Has your practice got a defibrillator?
While it is not currently a mandatory Indicator, practices must decide whether they need to install an AED, based on the risks of harm from cardiac arrest, by considering:

  • the location of the nearest AED
  • the number and composition of staff members
  • records of injuries, illnesses and near misses
