Fiona Declares “I’ll Do It” to Help Save a Life
Local Constituency MSP Fiona Hyslop has said she will step in and have a go at resuscitation if need be, joining the ‘Save a Life for Scotland’ campaign, which was marked on Friday October 16th.
“In Scandinavia, 80% of citizens are willing to ‘Have a Go’ at resuscitation if a member of the public collapsed in their company. This is compared to only 50% in Scotland.
“I have signed up to the Safe a Life for Scotland campaign and would encourage as many of my constituents to do the same, come forward and say, “I’ll do it.”
Every year over 3,500 people around Scotland are treated by the Ambulance Service after having a cardiac arrest. Unfortunately only around 1 in 20 people will survive. Starting CPR saves lives… so let’s be ready. We’re asking you to say ‘I’ll do it’ and be one of 500,000 people in Scotland getting trained in CPR.
