All our leaders have a current and up-to-date first aid qualification and we have fully equipped first aid kits at every meeting indoors and out. Following advice from The Scouts, where possible and appropriate a first aider will support a young person to undertake their own first aid. If this is not possible or not appropriate, the first aider will use the appropriate PPE and deal with the issue as usual. A first aid record form will be completed and parents/carers will be informed after the meeting.
If more serious, parents/carers may be contacted and/or health professional advice sought as normal.
