First Aid for Parents Session

Posted · Add Comment

Would you know what to do if your child was choking or how to spot the signs of meningitis? Did you know that every year over one million children under the age of 15 are taken to A&E after experiencing an accident in and around the home?

The NHS are offering a specially designed programme for parents, family members and anyone who cares for children, which provides essential First Aid training and will give you the skills, knowledge and confidence to administer appropriate first aid and cope effectively in the event of an emergency involving a child or baby.

Participants will learn vital life-saving skills such as resuscitation. They will also learn to deal with a range of emergencies including choking and concussion, as well as receiving training in meningitis and cot death awareness.

The next session is on Monday 18th March 2013 at 5.30pm until 8.10pm. It will be held in the Education Centre’s lecture theatre at Southend Hospital. (The Education Centre is located at the rear of the hospital and to the right of the multi-story car park.)

A donation is requested of £12.00 per person, which will go towards Southend Hospital’s Ladybird Nursery.
