FIRST AID

Our Multi Award winning classes are delivered in a relaxed and comfortable style and give you confidence to know what actions to take if faced with a medical emergency.

Mini First Aid offers a range of classes across the UK for all the family; parents, grandparents, carers and for children as young as three years old, training them in basic and life-saving first aid.

Surrey mum Helen is based in Epsom and has two children, Izzie and Matthew. In her 29 years as a flight manager, with a leading long haul airline, she has been faced with many first aid situations, and knows how to deal with them under pressure, not to mention the several incidents she has had bringing up her own two, from broken arms to gaping wounds! She believes that all carers of children should have the knowledge of basic first aid and be competent to deal with a situation, should it arise.

Our Multi Award winning Baby & Child First Aid classes for parents, grandparents and carers are delivered in a relaxed and comfortable style and give you confidence to know what actions to take if faced with a medical emergency.

You can book onto a public class at a local venue, or if you have a group of 6+ family and friends you may prefer to book a private class in the comfort of your own home.

I’m Claire, a qualified paediatric first aid trainer for Daisy First Aid covering Epsom, Ewell, Kingston and surrounding areas (KT1, KT3, KT4, KT5,KT9, KT17, KT19 & SM3

The classes I teach are aimed at parents, parents-to-be, grandparents, babysitters, café & restaurant staff, people in the leisure industry – in fact anyone who comes into contact with children in their day to day lives. These classes are fun and friendly and will give you the skills and confidence to know what to do in an emergency with your little ones. There are no tests (or role plays!) just lots of chances to practice and ask as many questions as you want.

I can offer classes either in the comfort of your own home for family and friends (min 4 people) at a time and date that suits you, or you can join one of the classes in venues across the local area.

This relaxed and informal two hour First Aid class will cover how to deal with an unconscious casualty, recovery positions for babies and children, CPR, choking, febrile seizures, fractures, bleeding, anaphylaxis (allergic reaction), burns, meningitis, sepsis, head injuries and poisons. You will have hands on practice using baby and child/adult manikins.
