Cheltenham’s Public Hearts Defib Campaign increases defibrillator coverage tenfold in under 2 years

Cheltenham’s not for profit community defibrillator campaign, Public Hearts is celebrating both its 5th anniversary and defib installations totaling 71 defibrillators in the local community.
From a standing start of 0 as recently as four years ago, and only 7 this time 2 years ago, Public Hearts has really put Cheltenham on the map for public access defibrillators which are vital in the event of a cardiac arrest. 
Run by Tidal Training Direct Ltd Director, Clare Seed, Key Partners including Spirax Sarco, Evans Jones, Tidal and Bob Holt OBE and the Defib Family, Public Hearts is an unique collaboration of community organisations, public and private sector businesses and charities, all of whom work together to give someone the best chance on their worst day through the provision of public access defibs. 

Cheltenham’s defibrillator locations range from CCP (pictured), The Brewery Quarter to The Quadrangle in town centre and through the heart of so many high density, high residential areas in St Paul’s, St Mark’s, St Peters All Saints and Hester’s Way. And there’s a number in Gloucester, Matson and Brimscombe, too. Most recently, Public Hearts has completed a rollout of several defibs with the support of CIL neighbourhood Funding, collaborating with Cheltenham Borough Council, Cheltenham Borough Homes and community hubs.

Public Hearts is delighted to be able to facilitate so many of these life changing and life-saving devices that can be used for anybody by anybody in a medical emergency.

    Brilliant course! Amazing to be able to practice CPR with a live link to assessment software. Now I know my skills are going to be effective if ever needed. Very reassuring to have my own CPR dummy for the duration of the course, and super confident of the safety protocols that Clare and the Tidal team have in place.

  • Fantastic courses, super friendly and helpful staff and owners. We wouldn't go anywhere else for our emergency first aid at work training.

    After attending this first aid training I was impressed with the amount of information that was covered in the day as well as being taught in such an engaging manor so the information was retained well. I especially liked that the trainer for the course was an active Paramedic and was able to relate the first aid training to real life scenarios and experiences and share stories which kept the course interesting and gave character to the course. Overall an enjoyable training course which has left me feeling confident in providing many forms of first aid, highly recommended.

    Wonderful training day, I now feel so much more confident in delivering First Aid thanks to Tidal Training Direct. I hope I don't need to use my skills but I am pleased I have the confidence and vital knowledge available to help save someone's life.

  • I attended my first course yesterday and what a wonderfully empowering experience it was. The highly trained paramedic teaching put us at ease straight away and I am looking forward to learning more of these invaluable skills. Lovely staff and great communication too. I will be recommending these courses to everyone - thank you.

    A genuinely lovely company. Very concerned for their clients' happiness and satisfaction. Very professional and organised everything beautifully. The trainers were AMAZING. Really bright and knowledgeable, able to respond to questions, kind, funny, friendly and approachable. Training can sometimes feel only partially useful, but this all felt like things we needed and would use, presented thoughtfully and clearly by brilliant trainers. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tidal and will certainly use them again. Thank you!
