St John Ambulance is determined that no one should die because they needed first aid and didn’t get it.

This app includes the latest first aid advice and protocols for dealing with emergency situations. It is simple to follow with illustrated guides and voiced instructions.

The app doesn’t replace the benefits of learning first aid on a St John Ambulance course, nor is it as in depth as a full first aid manual. But when there is an emergency, it will help you to know what to do to in those few crucial moments when basic knowledge of first aid can make the difference.

Nothing is more tragic than a life lost needlessly. You can be the difference between life and death.

Please note: The first aid advice is based solely upon UK protocols. Both the UK and European emergency service numbers are provided.

Basic app but VITAL information. Saves life's.

This is a simple and easy to use app. It's not be made to look whizzy or have style over substance. It contains VITAL information that could help you save a life or someone save yours. I recently went on a three day 'first aid at work' course and cannot praise the St Johns enough. It should be compulsory that everyone is trained in basic first aid. Why would you not want to be able to help someone or know that someone is trained to help you. Well done St Johns.
Keep up the great work!! :)

Soyyyyyy Gudddddd

This is a great app! Easy to use and can be the difference between a life lost and a life saved!

Would be better if it was a more modern format though - this doesn’t change how important it is though!

At Johns ambulance app

A source of useful information. However, the icons along the bottom of the screen are now half covered by the a-z listings so can’t see what they say. The a-z menu on my phone goes from asthma to strokes. If there are more options after that I can’t see them as it doesn’t scroll up.
