Overview of the department

The Resuscitation Department is based in the Education Centre and is part of the Clinical skills team. We are responsible for developing and delivering training in all aspects of clinical skills, care of the critically ill and resuscitation skills. Together with the Resuscitation Committee we are responsible for policy and procedures relating to resuscitation, defibrillators, resuscitation equipment and audit. We also respond to cardiac arrest calls when able and are involved in investigating critical incidents. We also work together with the clinical audit dept to collect and analyse data for the cardiac arrest audit.
