Andrew Lockey MBE


Resuscitation Council UK:

Andy Lockey is a Consultant in Emergency Medicine at Calderdale and 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 Humber regions. Andy first became involved with Resuscitation Council UK (RCUK) in 1993, when he became an ALS Instructor, and is now its president. His academic publications focus on the educational approach to resuscitation training, and have informed international guidelines produced by the European Resuscitation Council.

As a vocal advocate for training all children in CPR and defibrillator awareness, he was integral to 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, with over 1 million children trained in CPR since. A parallel 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. He also co-leads ‘World Restart a Heart’, which aims to take the same messaging to a global audience.

He was awarded an MBE in the King’s inaugural New Year’s Honours list in 2023 for services to resuscitation training.
