Local residents learnt a lifesaving skill today at the Hickings Lane Medical Centre, thanks to Richard MacRae and Dr John Doddy. 


Local residents gathered at the Hickings Lane Medical Centre after the event was organised following a chat about the importance of getting local people to learn the lifesaving skill which took place recently between Dr John Doddy and Richard MacRae.

It has now been decided to run the sessions several times a year at the Medical Centre in Stapleford.

Please follow the #LearnCPRInNottinghamshire Facebook Page for further dates and times.

#LearnCPR sessions also take place at other locations so again keep an eye on the #LearnCPRInNottinghamshire Facebook Page 

If you would like to organise a #LearnCPR session as many others have then please get in touch.

Practise Hands-only CPR with our BHF PocketCPR app

The free app explains how to carry out Hands-only CPR on someone in cardiac arrest using hard and fast chest compressions. Also, it allows you to practise by making use of the accelerometer in your smartphone. It means your phone can:

  • measure the rate and depth of compressions,
  • telling you if you need to do the compressions faster or slower,
  • or whether you should push harder or softer.

Download BHF PocketCPR for Android or download BHF PocketCPR for iPhone.

If someone’s had a cardiac arrest, they’ll be unconscious, not breathing or not breathing normally.

The person will die within minutes without immediate help. Act quickly and Call Push Rescue.

CALL 999 immediately.

PUSH hard and fast on the centre of the chest 30 times.

Give two RESCUE breaths.

Keep going until the emergency medical services arrive. If you’d rather not give rescue breaths then call 999 and deliver Hands-only CPR. That’s better than doing nothing.
