I am happy to be supporting the British Heart Foundation's campaign for Emergency Life Support (ELS) skills to be taught in schools.

Back in July I was pleased to attend Woodsetts Primary School's 999 day, which celebrated the pupils having completed the British Heart Foundation’s Heartstart course. It was fantastic to see the children’s grasp of the valuable life saving techniques they had learnt on the course.

I would like to see the learning of emergency life support skills become a mandatory part of the National Curriculum as the teaching of such vital skills would be highly beneficial to society.
