We provide FREE training courses available to unpaid carers in Derby City.

First Aid Training – What is First Aid?
First aid is the medical term used to describe the immediate assistance given to a person suffering a minor or major injury or sudden illness.
There are five main aims of first aid:
- Preserve life;
- Prevent an illness or injury from worsening;
- Promote recovery;
- Pain relief;
- Protecting the unconscious.
These can be remembered as the ‘5 Ps.’
It can include anything from performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to applying a plaster to a cut or fashioned a sling to support an injured arm. First aid is conducted either to solve a minor injury or illness (so cleaning a cut and putting on a plaster) to keeping a person safe and alive whilst an ambulance is being called.
