Saving Lives Together - SaLT
On an average day in England approximately 82 people will suffer a cardiac arrest outside of hospital. Of these 82 people only about 6 of them will survive to leave hospital and return home. Survival rates in other parts of the world far exceed ours.
At Saving Lives Together (SaLT) we know that there is an effective way to save lives, for bystanders to be trained and confident in performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Through our free CPR and defibrillator familiarisation sessions over the next five years it is our mission to teach readiness and empower a further 5 million people in the UK with the skills to perform CPR and use a defibrillator. It's a strategy that has already been written. We want to see it realised by working in partnership with other health organisations.
