Myth-busting afternoon tea: the truth about CPR

Wednesday 15 May
336 Brixton Road, London SW9 7AA

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) can be life-saving, but it’s not like a TV hospital drama.
Join us for a friendly and honest discussion about:

  • what re-starting someone’s heart actually involves
  • facts and figures about survival rates
  • is CPR appropriate in every situation?
  • choices we can make about receiving CPR
  • what a ‘do not attempt CPR notice’ is.

This free session will include:

  • a presentation from Kimberley St John, Transforming End of Life Care Lead at Guy’s and St
    Thomas’ Trust
  • information from London Ambulance Service
  • Q&A with Kimberley and a local GP
  • a chance to think about the treatment and care you would like if you weren’t able to
    communicate your wishes.

Please book your place or call Kate Damiral at Healthwatch, tel: 020 7095 5764.

Help with transport and other access eg carer cover is available – please call for details.

This event is part of Dying Matters Week. This national awareness week, coordinated by Hospice
UK, gives us an unparalleled opportunity to promote the importance of talking about dying, death
and bereavement as a natural part of everybody’s life cycle.

Our local programme includes: films, a play, discussions, information workshops on how to plan your future care and a ‘Before I Die…’ wall at Brixton Ritzy to share your bucket list dreams.  All the events are free – although some require pre-booking.
