Did you know that in 2014, there were over 4,000 hospital admissions for anaphylaxis in England? Anaphylaxis is a severe and life-threatening allergic reaction, which requires immediate medical attention. With the number of sufferers increasing each year, it is extremely important to know what to do when faced with this acute emergency condition.
Our 3 hour Basic Life Support and Management of Anaphylaxis course has been designed for those who have a specific responsibility at work, at home or in voluntary and community activities, to provide basic life support and manage anaphylaxis when dealing with an emergency. Successful candidates will be able to recognise the signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis, and will be equipped with the vital skills needed to administer safe, prompt and effective treatment. Assessment is ongoing by our First Aid trainer and upon successful completion of this course attendees will be awarded a nationally recognised Ofqual regulated certificate valid for 1 year.
Only £30 plus vat per person
(includes certification and a First Aid handbook to keep)

From 1 October 2017, all primary and secondary schools will be able to order extra adrenaline auto-injectors, such as EpiPen, Jext or Emerade, from pharmacies, and store them for use in emergencies. Children with severe allergies will be able to access the life-saving treatment if they need an extra dose, if their allocated device is not available, doesn’t work properly or is used incorrectly. The spare devices can only be used on pupils at risk of anaphylaxis – a life-threatening allergic reaction – where consent from doctors and parents has already been obtained.
The Department of Health has issued new guidance for schools on how to use adrenaline auto-injectors. It describes how to recognise the signs of a mild allergic reaction and the more serious anaphylaxis.
