Community Resilience

Members of the public phone for help for a patient in a street

We recognise that communities with equipment and basic lifesaving skills can help save lives. We therefore recognise the benefits in helping communities to develop their own resilience.  

The Service works closely with a number of public and private sector partners including the British Heart Foundation Scotland to develop and deliver the best patient care for people in Scotland. These partnerships identify the need to develop sustainable community resilience; the ability of communities to help themselves and to do so as part of an integrated network of support and care appropriate to their needs.
