Prof. Andy Lockey is a Consultant in Emergency Medicine at Calderdale & Huddersfield NHS Trust and Visiting Professor in Emergency Medicine at the University of Huddersfield. He is also an Associate Dean for NHS England (Workforce, Training and Education) for the Yorkshire and the Humber region. Andy first became involved with Resuscitation Council UK (RCUK) in 1993, when he became an ALS Instructor, and is now President of RCUK. His academic publications focus on the educational approach to resuscitation training, and have informed international guidelines produced by the European Resuscitation Council. Andy is a vocal advocate for training all children in CPR and defibrillator awareness. He was integral in the development of the European Restart a Heart initiative in 2013 and has led the RCUK Restart a Heart initiative since its inception in 2016 which has led to over 1 million children being trained in CPR. During this time, a parallel lobbying initiative in partnership with the British Heart Foundation, St John, and British Red Cross has resulted in CPR training becoming mandatory for all children in the UK. Andy also co-leads World Restart a Heart, which aims to take the same messaging to a global audience. Andy was awarded an MBE in the King’s inaugural New Year’s Honours list in 2023 for services to resuscitation training.
