Paediatrician and TV doctor, Dr Ranj Singh, will deliver a live first-aid lesson next month to teach lifesaving skills to schoolchildren around the country.
The Big First Aid Lesson Live, which was presented by Claudia Winkleman last year, will deliver two lessons – one for primary and one for secondary schools.
It will cover topics including choking, chest pains, seizures and insect bites. Dr Ranj (pictured) will also give live demos and allow students to ask him questions about first-aid techniques.
Dr Ranj, who is presenting the lesson on behalf of St John Ambulance, says: “As a doctor, I know only too well how important first-aid can be in an emergency. Being able to immediately help someone – a family member, school mate, a neighbour, or even a stranger – can be lifesaving. But you don’t have to be a medic like me to learn or use it.”
The free lesson, for pupils aged between 7 and 16, will take place on June 17.
