About London Lifesavers
London Ambulance Service is aiming to make London a city of lifesavers, through organising life-saving CPR and defibrillator training for communities, organisations and schools.
It only takes a few minutes to learn how to save a life.
London Lifesavers is funded through a grant provided by NHS Charities Together to our charity, London Ambulance Charity.
Save someone you love
London Ambulance Service responds to around 14,000 patients a year in cardiac arrest in the capital.
Cardiac arrest is when a person’s heart stops beating and stops pumping blood and oxygen around the body. At the moment fewer than one in 10 people survive a cardiac arrest.
We can all make a difference. Help us to help London by becoming a London Lifesaver today. Knowing what to do when someone is in cardiac arrest and having the confidence to act quickly will save lives.
More than 75 per cent of cardiac arrests happen at home, so by learning these simple skills, you could save someone you love.
Early CPR and defibrillation can more than double someone’s chances of survival. Both of these can be done by a member of the public before the ambulance service arrives.
