TEACHING LIFE-SAVING SKILLS AT SCHOOL
EDM #550
Tabled 18 September 2012
2012-13 Session
That this House knows that around 60,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur each year in Britain, with around 50 per cent of these being treated by emergency medical services, with survival rates varying across the UK; understands therefore the importance of the teaching of emergency life support skills which would enable the set of actions required to keep someone alive until such times as professional help arrives; is aware that young people and children are often present at the scenes of accidents and emergencies and if properly trained can be at least as effective as adults in administrating life-saving actions; believes that such skills should be a mandatory part of secondary education in the UK; and calls on the Secretary of State for Education to immediately examine ways in which this could be achieved.
