Parent First Aid

Recent research of 2000 parents indicated that 95% admitted to having little or no first aid knowledge. They expressed that they would not feel confident enough to assist if their child was seriously injured. With approximately 500,000 children a year making visits to accident and emergency departments, it is more important than ever for parents, grandparents and carers to have the right knowledge and skills to assist.
