Resuscitation Council (UK)

The Resuscitation Council (UK) is the United Kingdom body responsible for setting central standards for cardiopulmonary resuscitation and related disciplines, and is a member of the European Resuscitation Council,[1] which in turn is part of the international standards body, the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation or 'ILCOR'.[2]


The Resuscitation Council (UK) was formed in August 1981 by a group of medical professionals with a shared interest in resuscitation, and has an objective of educating both the lay public and health care professionals in the most effective resuscitation methods.[3]


The Resuscitation Council aims to:[3]

  • To encourage research into methods of resuscitation
  • To study resuscitation teaching techniques
  • To establish appropriate guidelines for resuscitation procedures
  • To promote the teaching of resuscitation as established in the guidelines
  • To establish and maintain standards for resuscitation
  • To foster good working relations between all organisations involved in resuscitation and to produce and publish training aids and other literature concerned with the organisation of resuscitation and its teaching
