About First Aid Society

The First Aid Society is based around the work and involvement of St John Ambulance, which is the leading national First Aid Charity. The activities that we run include learning critical First Aid Skills, that can make a difference and potentially save a life. These include CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation), the use of Defibrillators, and wound treatment. The First Aid Society will also give you the opportunity to become a volunteer with St John Ambulance in various capacities, one of which can be providing First Aid at Community Events. These include the Great South Run in Portsmouth, Portsmouth FC, concerts, and even festivals. Being a member of the first aid society will enhance your skills in communication, teamwork, and confidence. It will also enable you to gain invaluable skills that will be transferable to future jobs. It will push you to think outside the box in a way that may not relate to your University Degree.

We have a new and exciting training Programme for the next Academic Year with lots of fantastic learning and development events. The society also holds social evenings which will include, bowling, mini golf, and purple Wednesdays. This will further enable our members to make friends, meet new people, and have some fun. We meet on a Monday Evening in the Student's Union at 7 pm.
