First aid

Your First aid Guide

First aid is the initial treatment that can be given to a sick or injured person until proper medical assistance can be administered.

This includes simple things such as the treatment of cuts and bruises, to more serious interventions such as the Heimlich manoeuvre and CPR.

Everyone should know how to perform basic first aid. The best way to learn is to do a course, and then keep up to date with the latest guidelines.

Hopefully you'll never have to use these skills, but if you do, you may just save a life.
