Two drop-in events are being held in Skye outlining how NHS Highland deal with heart attack emergencies.
Each of the sessions at the Aros Centre, Portee, on Wednesday, November 2, will include a 20-minute presentation followed by an hour-long ‘open forum’ for questions from the floor.
The first drop-in session will run from 4pm- to 5.30pm and the second one will start immediately after from 5.30pm to 7pm.
Among those on hand to answer queries will be Dr Peter Clarkson, consultant cardiologist, and Charlie Bloe, charge nurse at the coronary care unit at Raigmore Hospital.
Alan Knox from Scottish Ambulance Service as well as local clinicians.
Mr Bloe said: “We intend to make two presentations about heart attacks on the day. They will both be about 20 minutes long. We want people to come along because it’s crucial – possibly lifesaving – information.
“After the sessions we hope that people will know more about the signs and symptoms.
“What you should you do if you think you are having a heart attack, and how the emergency services – from the paramedics on the scene to the cardiac specialists here in Inverness – are using the latest equipment and technology to work together to manage heart attacks and other cardiac emergencies.”
