Scottish Cardiac Arrest Symposium viewable online
A big thank-you to all those who made the Scottish Cardiac Arrest Symposium on 27th March a resounding success. It was a terrific day. There was a great sense of momentum around the launch of the OHCA Strategy for Scotland and a real feeling that we can and will save lives as we change the systems we work in.
