First Aid Advice

We have lots of useful information on dealing with the most common incidents which happen in and around the home.

Of course, we realise that everyone hopes that they are never confronted with these situations.

But unfortunately, the facts are otherwise. What is more, the chances are the victim will be somebody close to you.

Please note: If you dial 999 take instructions from the ambulance call-taker. They will be able to coach you in real time which is preferable.
