Service details



Herefordshire Heartstart is a voluntary organisation, established in 1996, to teach the people of Herefordshire Emergency Life Support (ELS) skills. These skills are the actions needed to help keep someone alive until professional assistance arrives.

Why attend a Heartstart Course? It could save your life or that of your friends and family!

Courses require no special medical skills. They are FREE and take around two hours. It could be one of the most valuable things you'll ever learn. Heart disease touches us all, and in the future your ELS skills may mean the difference between the life and death of a family member or friend

On the course you will learn vital lifesaving skills which could help to keep a person alive until professional assistance arrives.

The course includes:-

· How to call for help

· How to help someone who is unconscious and put them into the recovery position

· How to perform CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation—chest compressions and rescue breathing) including the use of a defibrillator (AED)

· How to recognise the signs and symptoms of a heart attack

· How to deal with choking

· How to deal with serious bleeding

We run public courses at various locations throughout Herefordshire, but rely on free venues to run these courses.

We run courses for groups, businesses, voluntary organisations and schools all over Herefordshire.

We train school staff to deliver Heartstart in the classroom.

If you are interested in arranging a course for your group or booking onto a public course, or to train your school staff to deliver Heartstart, please contact the charity coordinator
