Public Hearts Defib Campaign launches Cardiac Screening

Having facilitated 72 publicly accessible defibs in Cheltenham and surrounding areas in the last 5 years – and 66 of these in the last 2 years – these defibrillators can and do save lives in a cardiac arrest.

To celebrate five years of our not-for-profit community work, Public Hearts is proud to announce Phase 2.

Starting in 2024, Public Hearts Defibrillator Campaign is launching a Community Cardiac Screening Program to help address the health inequalities in the most underrepresented areas of Cheltenham.

Each week in the UK, 12 young people aged between 14 and 35 die from sudden cardiac arrest. The only way to diagnose congenital heart defects or genetic abnormalities in the heart’s electrical system and structure is through ECG and ECHO screening.

Currently there is no automatic framework to offer cardiac screening in the UK, unless there has been a young sudden death in the family.

The family is then entitled to be screened on the NHS. This can be a long wait, extending the length of timely diagnosis and prolonging the uncertainty for individuals and their family.

In collaboration with Public Hearts key partners, Spirax-Sarco, Evans Jones, Tidal, G4S, Circle2Success, Bob Holt OBE and our charity partner, CCP our 1st community cardiac screening program offers funded cardiac screening in pockets of Cheltenham considered to be amongst the 10 most deprived areas in the country.

The first date is 25 April 2024 9-4pm and will be hosted at The Schoolhouse Café to encourage the local community and residents of St Paul’s aged 14 – 35 to be screened.
Facilitating community cardiac screening actively promotes getting to the heart of the community, facilitating access for all and life-changing and lifesaving information that could improve the health and lives of individuals, families, neighbourhoods, and the potential of future community health services. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) affects 1 in every 250 people worldwide, so its impact is far reaching, and close to home.By supporting our screening program, our charity partner, CCP will also benefit as we are donating 20% of each screen sponsor to support their vital community services.

  • 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.

    BeSocial@theCentre have been using Tidal Training for our staff training needs for a couple of years now and we could not be more pleased with the service and quality of training that they provide. When we contact the office, the staff we speak to are very friendly and helpful – every query or issue we have is always dealt with professionally and efficiently – 100 % customer service satisfaction! The ‘Trainers’ who we have had the pleasure of meeting, either face-to-face or online, have always been fantastic. Very clear in their presentation, knowledgeable in their subject and have made learning enjoyable. Sitting through a dull training session certainly is not on the agenda with Tidal Training! The flexibility and understanding, that BeSocial@theCentre have experienced with Tidal Training during recent months, due to a change in Centre staff and then COVID-19 pressures, has be second to none. Both Clare and Colin have been fantastic in changing dates and fitting our staff members in to different sessions to fit our requirements – We can not thank them enough for their patience with us. Thank you to the whole team at Tidal Training – We will see you at our next session!

    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.

    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!

    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.
