Free 1st Aid Training

provided by Badgerswood and Forest Patient Participation Group

The Badgerswood and Forest Surgeries PPG is now running free training courses in 1st Aid to all residents of Headley, Lindford, Bordon and surrounding areas. Certificated trammg .is being provided by medically qualified staff with excellent teaching experience , and standards of training are those set by the Resuscitation Council UK.

Training will be given in Basic Life Support, management of choking, anaphylaxis and major haemorrhage. Practical training and hands on use of a defibrillator will be included.
Please contact us via our website or via one of our surgery reception desks leaving your name and a contact detail (emai, telephone number or address). Please also indicate when you would be available to attend a course (day-time, evening, weekend).

Priority will be given initially to PPG members, drivers for the Voluntary Care schemes, those working or living near defibrillators and carers or people looking after sick relatives or friends who may wish to know methods of resuscitation. Please indicate if this applies to you when you contact us. Everyone who applies however will be allocated a slot for training.

Our aim is not to raise funds from this venture but to raise the standard of knowledge and ability to resuscitate in the community, should the need for this arise. We are therefore offering to do this for free. Donations, however small to cover our costs would be welcome but are not expected.
Details of courses will be provided to everyone who applies to explain how the courses run, the content and what is required. All courses are suitable for all ages, from children to the elderly and we would encourage everyone to attend.
