On Saturday 2nd September, at Next Level Fitness Gym, a free Medical Emergencies Management morning was held. Dr Jon Bingham
Jon is a Midlands Air Ambulance doctor from Stone and he taught sessions on assessment of the acutely unwell, how to perform CPR, how to use an AED (like the one in our High Street), how to put someone in the recovery position and how to manage a bleeding or choking person.
The session was supported by Midlands Air Ambulance, West Midlands Ambulance Service and Stone’s own AED Donate who are looking at providing an AED at Next Level Fitness Gym in the near future, something which will benefit the whole of Stone Business Park.
There is a plan to hold more of these sessions in the future including to the wider Stone community. Watch this space for details.
