First Aid

For many of us dealing with a medical emergency or injury can be quite daunting.  The feeling as we try to  remember what to do, the worry that we might do it wrong and cause more harm, all while knowing that we only have a short time to act can make the situation seem overwhelming.  In reality there is only so much that we can do as first aiders but what we can do can make all the difference to a person in distress.

Our courses are very practical and work on the basis that help may be required without a first aid kit being  immediately available.

We focus on safety, recognising the seriousness of the situation and a logical series of steps to manage the incident.

At the end of the training trainees will have the skills and the confidence to handle first aid emergencies.
