Would you know what to do in an emergency?

Free first aid training sessions are being made available at local children’s centres by the NHS Leeds South & East CCG. Parents and carers are encouraged to learn vital practical skills and knowledge. Topics covered will include: child and baby CPR, choking treatment, bumps and bruises, burns, poisons, rashes, meningitis and more.

A free crèche will run for all courses, but there are a limited number of places, so don’t delay booking a place.
