First Aid in Emergencies
At its March meeting Council approved new guidance on First Aid in Emergencies.
This builds on the bulletin issued to all registrants in January 2020 following the GCC’s response to the York coroner’s report and has been published on our website here. It states our expectations of registrants in keeping their first aid competencies current and relevant and connects our guidance to the Code.
We recognise that many of you have already taken the opportunity to undergo training or refresher training and that many providers are offering or looking to offer online training at this difficult time. We ask that you reflect on your skills and knowledge and make plans for any training you need when circumstances allow for this.
