Lancashire Women’s Centres – Ready to Save Lives

Lancashire Women’s Centres (LWC) provide health and social care services in Cumbria and Lancashire to women and their families.

Throughout May/June 2018 Heartbeat NWCC are delivering a series of first aid workshops at LWC’s 5 Lancashire sites, which were made available to all staff.

Workshop sessions were 90 minutes in duration and covered work-place specific first aid topics, such as;

  • serious bleeding
  • CPR
  • recovery position
  • suspected heart attack
  • choking
  • anaphylaxis
  • seizures
  • safe use of a AED (Defib)

Sessions were practical, hands-on training tailored to the working environment.

In total 27 members of LWC staff attended the workshops.

“Thanks Siân for being so patient, letting us chop & change dates & travelling all over Lancashire to train our teams. The feedback from everyone has been excellent & they feel more confident now to cope with emergency situations” Kathryn Malley, Service Manager (Blackpool & Lancaster)
