Patients and visitors to the hospital have an expectation to be provided with an effective resuscitation service, in the event that they or their relative suffer a cardiac or respiratory arrest. The resuscitation service is in place to provide a clinical and educational service to the Trust employees to ensure this expectation is being met.

Resuscitation Officers provide the service within the Trust; they are all healthcare professionals (nurses or paramedics) with a specialist interest in resuscitation procedures for adult and paediatric patients. Their roles are both clinical and educational, requiring them to attend resuscitation events to provide clinical assistance and guidance. They also manage an audit process of all events where the resuscitation team has been called out within the Trust.

We have five resuscitation courses in our team. They are responsible for supporting clinical areas in maintaining patient safety during emergency situations.
