Chain of Survival

The chain of survival refers to a series of actions that, when put into motion, reduce the mortality associated with cardiac arrest.

Like any chain, the chain of survival is only as strong as its weakest link.

Stroke Recognition

F.A.S.T. stands for:

F – Face – has their face fallen on one side? Can they smile?
A – Arms – Can they raise both arms and keep them there?
S – Speech – is their speech slurred?
T –Time to call 999 if you spot any single one of these signs.

The F.A.S.T. acronym was created as a simple way for people to remember the main warning signs of stroke so that they can act immediately in the case of a stroke by dialling 999.

Heart Attack

Call 999/112 at the first sign of a Heart Attack

Too often people delay in getting to hospital – they don’t want to cause a fuss or they waste vital time calling family or friends first – which can prove fatal. Our message is simple, don’t die of embarrassment – call 999/112 at the first sign of a heart attack.
