Welcoming The Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice Rt Hon. Alex Chalk KC MP

We were delighted to welcome Cheltenham’s Member of Parliament, The Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice, Rt Hon Alex Chalk KC MP with our Public Hearts Key Partners Tidal Training Ltd, Spirax Sarco, Evans Jones and Circle2Success to share progress and plans 
We discussed the need for publicly accessible defibs as public health infrastructure to support the increasing number of out of hospital cardiac arrests, which is currently around 35,000 in the UK each year; the postive impacts of our our communities and the difference they have made throughout the course of their journey already,the importance of The Circuit and being an active Guardian to ensure they remain in service, maintained and emergency ready. Alex is impressed by the installation of 72 defibrillators, including a staggering 30 new ones in 2023
He is also keen to raise awareness of our new cardiac screening program, which will be truly transformational and life-saving in Cheltenham – and then kindly went on to share his thoughts and reflections on social media: 
Thank you to the amazing Clare and her team for inviting me to Public Hearts HQ alongside key partners Tidal Training Direct Ltd Evans Jones Ltd Spirax Sarco and Circle2Success Ltd to learn more about the lifesaving work Public Hearts are doing in #Cheltenham.
Public Hearts is a community not-for-profit campaign who have installed 71 publicly accessible defibrillators in and around Cheltenham since 2018. That’s about £200,000-worth of investment, and makes our town better covered than probably anywhere else in the South-West.
And before you ask – yes, they’re being used!! The data shows that this kit has already *saved lives*.

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

    Had a first aid at work training with Tidal and it was a great experience overall. The teacher was clear and very knowledgeable, the class went at a really good pace there was plenty of time to ask questions when needed yet the day went by very quickly!
