Improving Access to Life-Saving Training in Leeds

PhysioLeeds/Fit4Work ran a free training course on the 5th September 2017 which was attended by fifteen residents from the community of Cookridge, near Horsforth in Leeds.

Angela Hinton, founder of Fit4Work and owner of the PhysioLeeds, demonstrated what to do when dealing with a non breathing casualty. The residents of Cookridge learned how to deliver CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) and also how to use the AED machine (Automated External Defibrilator) which is fixed to the Cookridge Village Hall wall.

Participants enjoyed their afternoon and were grateful to acquire these valuable and potentially life-saving skills.
