The total annual cost of home accident casualties who are treated for their injuries at hospital – around 2.7 million people each year – is estimated to be £45.63 billion (£45,630 million), based on an average cost of £16,900 per victim.
It’s difficult not to feel emotional when thinking about treating our children or family members when they suffer potentially life-threatening injuries or conditions, but many of the parents that we talk to and teach believe that it is better to be forewarned and forearmed.
- What would I do if my baby choked?
- What would I do if my child fell from a height?
- What do I do first if my teenager is not responding?

- The recovery position
- CPR / the use of a defibrillator
- Assessing an emergency situation
- Burns and scalds

Accidents do happen but having the confidence to deal with an emergency can make all the difference. First aid training in a friendly environment can give you the all-important skills that you may need whilst looking after inquisitive little explorers who may often need more than just a plaster!
