Dr Duncan Bew (Consultant Trauma Surgeon) Kings College Hospital interviewed for the BBC on 31/3/13 to share his opinion that: “All young people should be taught First Aid, especially because of the recent rises in knife crime. All young people should be prepared.”
We at Meaningful Change have similar views to the good Doctor, but from a slightly different perspective. In our opinion First Aid for All should not just be in response to the increasingly hazardous world in which we live, but should be a gift of lifesaving skills and the ability to help with all those day to day minor injuries. The cuts, burns, and scalds, the recognition of concussions happening on sports fields every weekend. Exercise your right to know what to do in an emergency and have the confidence to do it.
