Alyn and Deeside MP backs calls to get life-saving skills taught on secondary curriculum

ALYN and Deeside MP Mark Tami has stepped into the shoes of a Hollywood hard man Vinnie Jones to show his support for a charity’s campaign to get life-saving skills taught as standard on the secondary curriculum.

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) and Resuscitation Council UK (RCUK) want to see Emergency Life Support (ELS) skills taught in secondary schools as a mandatory part of the curriculum.

In September, the BHF and RCUK delivered a petition to Downing Street with more than 100,000 signatures of support.

Mark Tami MP said: “By teaching life-saving skills in schools, we could put hundreds of thousands of new life-savers on the streets each year.

“Every second counts in an emergency, so I’m supporting the campaign.”
