Matthew Banagan, Sales and Marketing Director, commented: “This is brilliant news to receive. Knowing we are helping save so many lives on a daily basis in a choking emergency is an amazing feeling. I look forward to the 2022 ONS, NISRA, NRS and all NHS Ambulance Trusts choking statistics, to see how much we have truly reduced the number of choking deaths in the UK for people over the age of 65. As we already know the true figure from the ONS of choking deaths in the UK are completely inaccurate .”
