Medicine for Members - Free CPR sessions introduced for Members
York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has launched Medicine for Members, a series of exclusive talks and events for its members.
The first event to be arranged is a basic CPR training session which will take place on a number of dates over the coming year at Scarborough and York Hospitals.
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation or CPR is a lifesaving technique useful in many emergencies in which someone's breathing or heartbeat has stopped
Lynda Provins, Membership and Governor Manager, explained: “As a new benefit for our members we are offering them the opportunity to take part in a free basic CPR training session. This opportunity is also available to new members who sign up to become part of our membership community.
“The sessions which will be run by our trained staff will take place at York and Scarborough Hospitals. They will give a basic overview of both adult and paediatric CPR covering basic understanding, choking and how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).
“If you are a Member of our Foundation Trust and are interested in attending one of these free sessions you can sign up to attend here.
“Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. If the sessions prove popular we will look at putting on additional dates. If you would like to attend but are not already a member, you can first sign up to become a member on our website.”
The first sessions take place on Wednesday 4 May at York Hospital and 18 May at Scarborough Hospital.
York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has over 11,500 members. As a Foundation Trust it has to have a membership community which is made up of local people, patients, carers and staff who it is accountable to. As a member you can also stand for election to become a Governor.
