First Aid can be as serious as saving someone’s life, or as simple as comforting someone who is feeling unwell.  In this course, you will learn basic skills that are easy to remember but incredibly important. With these skills, you can easily prevent someone from getting worse, reduce their pain, and help their recovery. 

First aid relies on quick help from the medical professionals. It’s important that you call 999 as soon as possible so the Paramedics can get there and help.  One of the most important things you can do for the injured person is simply talking to them. Hearing your voice will reassure and calm them until help arrives. Whenever you are helping somebody it’s important to make sure that you are safe, that you get help, and you talk to them while treating what you can.
