Partnership Working

School Programme

We are proud to announce that The Harris Charity are supporting our education programme in 2016.

 

The Harris Charity

Heartbeat’s education team has been awarded a grant to help deliver and develop cardiovascular disease prevention talks/visits/workshops to children and young people in the Preston area.  Recent statistics show that the prevalence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and Type 2 diabetes is higher in the north of the country compared to the south (NHS, 2012) and that the health of children in Lancashire is generally worse than the England average.

Health habits are established in childhood and continue into adult life, this project will raise the profile of CVD, a largely preventable disease through educational workshops aimed at children. Workshops will include subjects such as; keeping your heart healthy, what’s in my drink, planning, preparation and portion size, healthy eating and food labels, fitness testing, eating out and first aid skills.

Within a 12 month period during 2013-14 we delivered educational workshops to 2749 under 18’s throughout Lancashire. We are hoping that this project will reach and exceed these numbers enabling us to develop the programme further.

For more information please contact Sian on 01772 717147 or email Sian on sian.edwards@heartbeat-nwcc.org.uk

Heartbeat and the Lancashire Sunday Football League

Heartbeat Cardiac Screening - Aviva Community Fund

Heartbeat has entered into an exciting new partnership to provide cardiac testing for Sunday League footballers and referees.

The Lancashire Sunday League (formerly the LEP Sunday League) which has 85 clubs, playing in 7 divisions with 2,200 registered players, has pledged its charitable support to Heartbeat to enable them to deliver this new pilot project.

Westinghouse Springfield’s supports Heartbeat as their Charity of the Year and will financially support and contribute to the pilot.

180 screening tests will be undertaken by Heartbeats medical team over the next few months.

Every week at least 12 ‘apparently’ fit and healthy young people die in the UK from undiagnosed heart conditions. People (14-36 year olds) involved in sport may be at greater risk if they have an underlying cardiac abnormality and put their heart under stress whilst playing, in most cases there are no obvious symptoms. The testing will start on Saturday 30th January.

League Chairman Eamonn McNamara said, ‘We are delighted to be associated with Heartbeat; an organisation which does so much for people with heart issues and we are sure that it will be a great benefit to our players and referees’

Jill Rogerson, Chief Executive of Heartbeat said, ‘It is important as a cardiac charity to ensure we deliver early intervention and prevention services if we are to contribute to a reduction in heart disease. We are excited about delivering this pilot programme with the football league, it is a great opportunity to support more people and raise awareness of heart disease and if we identify one young person with a potential heart problem it will have been worthwhile’

Packing a Punch for Heartbeat!

Heart5

On Saturday 9th January lads from all corners of the Lancashire Sunday League battled it out in the ring at Evoque Nightclub, Preston, after 8 weeks of hard training and dedication.

No less than 28 fighters went toe to toe for 3 x 2 minute rounds in a box office style event that saw the lads out of their usual comfort zone.

One fight caught the social media headlines is Dixie “THE MELODY MAKER” Dawson (Unicorn FC Manager) v Daz “THE KING” Green (Ashton Villa). Dixie said “I’m in a win, win situation, having joined up to this event 8 weeks ago. It has helped me turn a corner with my own fitness and I feel like Charlie from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, having been handed a golden ticket to sort out Ashton Villa’s Daz Green. I am delighted that the evening is in support of Heartbeat which is a great local charity”.

Daz Green said” As soon as I heard that this event was in support of Heartbeat I wanted to be involved have gone through two heart operations to fix a heart rhythm problem, which thankfully I have fully recovered from”.

Daz continued, “I got on the phone immediately to Craig Ashcroft to ask him to sort me a clash with Unicorns David “Dixie” Dawson and I thought it would be the occasion to show the people why I am the King. I’m also very grateful and appreciative for this chance to represent the Lancashire Sunday League and my team Ashton Villa in a totally different environment.”

The referee for the evening was Rob Reid, the former WBC Super Middleweight Champion.

A word of praise for Craig Ashcroft who has done a tremendous amount of work organising the event in support of Heartbeat the League’s adopted charity.

A HUGE thank you

to all those that took part in the

Conlon Construction lead by example

Conlon2

Leading by example, Conlon Construction have taken a step to giving anyone in the organisation and local community a better chance of survival if Cardiac Arrest was to strike. When an AED and CPR are immediately available, the chance of survival from sudden cardiac arrest is substantially improved. Combined with CPR, the use of an AED may increase the likelihood of survival by 75% or more”

Conlon

Current UK survival rates among people who have a cardiac arrest outside hospital remain extremely poor, varying from 2% to 12%. Every year an estimated 60,000 out of hospital cardiac arrests occur in the UK, 30,000 of which are treated by emergency medical services (British Medical Journal).

Optimal use of the “chain of survival” is what makes the difference between life and death. 30 years ago it was discovered that when someone suffered an out of hospital Cardiac arrest; if certain things happened in a certain order, their chances of survival increased. This concept is now known as the Chain of Survival. The Chain of survival is made up of four links; three of which can be strengthened by members of the public who take some time to learn basic life skills. The first link is early recognition; being able to recognise someone is in Cardiac arrest is the first step to helping them. The second link is early CPR; by performing chest compressions you can keep their heart going until a defibrillator arrives. The third link is early defibrillation. Finally, the forth link is early advanced care. This is delivered by the paramedics who arrive shortly after. If you start CPR within 2 minutes, place a defibrillator on their chest in four minutes and a paramedic arrives in 8, they have a 40% chance of survival.

A defibrillator also known as a ‘defib’ or automated external defibrillator (AED) can mean the difference between life and death for the victim of a sudden cardiac arrest.  This portable device checks the heart rhythm and can send an electric shock to the heart to try to restore a normal rhythm. AEDs are used to treat sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). SCA is a condition in which the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating.

A patient’s chance of survival decreases 14% every minute that passes without defibrillation; with the application of an AED within 5 minutes of collapse the best possible chance of survival is maintained (North West Ambulance Service).

AED machines are built to be easy to use, safe and reliable giving verbal insturctions throughout treatment. If someone is in cardiac arrest (unresponsive and not breathing at all or not breathing normally) don’t be scared to use one, the AED will not let you shock a person it is not appropriate.

AEDs save lives

“The Resuscitation Council (UK) strongly recommends the implementation of early defibrillation. Increased provision of early defibrillation through the widespread deployment of AEDs is now considered a realistic strategy for reducing mortality from cardiac arrest due to ischaemic heart disease.” (The Resuscitation Council UK)
