Emergency Life Support – Would You Know What To Do?

 Did you know that over 270,000 people in the UK suffer a heart attack each year – that's one heart attack every two minutes.

Emergency life support (ELS) comprises the vital skills needed to sustain someone's life in an emergency until professional help arrives.
