First Aid for parents
08 February 2017
Over one million children under the age of 15 are taken to A&E after experiencing an accident in or around a home.
Now, Southend Hospital is delivering training sessions aimed at
everyone from parents, carers, family members and babysitters. The
sessions will teach people about recovery positions, choking and
how to give CPR and will use baby and junior resus manikins as part
of the training.
The first session takes place on Wednesday 22 February from
6.30pm - 8.30pm, and is focussed on babies aged up to one year old.
Another session is aimed at those caring for children aged over one
year old and takes place on Wednesday 8 March, also from 6.30pm -
Places are limited to 14 people for each session and there is a
minimum donation of £20 per person. Those completing a session will
be awarded a certificate by the training session provider, PJ First
Aid Training Ltd.
