Asthma patients 'missing out on basic care'

Millions of asthma patients in the UK are not getting basic care they need to manage their condition, a charity says. Asthma UK, which questioned more than 4,500 patients, said two-thirds miss out on yearly check-ups, tailored advice and lessons in how to use their asthma inhalers. It says it is a slight improvement on a year ago but remains a bleak picture. In 2015 in the UK, 1,468 people died from an asthma attack - the highest level in a decade.

Childcare and First Aid: What You Need To Know

It has been the topic of many heated debates over the past few years – the fact that it is not a legal obligation to have a first aid qualification if you are an after school club or childcare facility.   In fact, under the Under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 (HSWA), employers must provide adequate and appropriate first aid equipment, first aid facilities and first aid personnel – but this does not necessarily translate into a first aid qualification.   Sc...

Should First Aid Be Compulsory In Schools?

Here at Aid Training, we’ve long believed and supported calls for first aid to be made a compulsory part of the national school curriculum, as we know first-hand just how important it can be in saving lives.
