You and your staff will get hands-on experience from medical professionals who are actually working in Wales, using state of the art equipment, in order to learn how to lead a healthy life and how to save a life in an emergency.

Training will include:

  • CPR and defibrillator use.
  • Blood pressure and cholesterol testing.
  • Relaxation.

Hold a heart screening session in your area

JS88494707Welsh Hearts has a screening team of medically qualified personnel, who can visit sports clubs, schools and other community venues on request, to screen people 5 years old and above.

Heart screening sessions cost £5,000 to screen 120 hearts. That’s a full day for ECG tests with an echocardiogram if required. They are hosted in a suitable venue, currently on Saturdays only, with a view to do Sundays too.

Perhaps your community can fundraise the amount required, or have the event sponsored by a local company. If you wish to organise a screening event, you’ll work in conjunction with Welsh Hearts’ Screening Programme Manager to book a venue, promote the event and make sure that all required paperwork is completed by potential clients.

An ECG machine costs £5,000 and a portable echocardiogram machine costs between £21,000 and £25,000.

Please contact screenings@welshhearts.org for more information on sponsoring a heart screening session.
