London top as cardiac arrest survival rates compared

(From the BBC)
London has the best cardiac arrest survival rate in the country, newly-released figures suggest.

During 2011-12, the out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survival rate in London was 31.7% - a figure that includes footballer Fabrice Muamba's case.
That compares with second placed East of England with 24.4% and a low of 10.8% in the South Central region.

It is the first time all ambulance services in England have measured the survival rate.

The figures were submitted to the Department of Health for collation.
