First Aid

First aiders volunteer to provide medical treatment to staff, students and visitors to the University. This treatment may be either to preserve life and minimise injury until assistance from the emergency services arrives or to treat minor injuries which do not need the attention of a medical practitioner or nurse.

Local first aid trained staff operate during normal working hours. Out-of-hours first aid assistance is provided by Security Services.

Dial 112233 from any internal phone or 0117 3311223 from a mobile.

First aider updates form

Please use this form to update us about any first aiders in your local area including,
  • requesting training for new first aiders

This form should be filled out by School/Service Safety Advisers (SSAs) only.

First Aid boxes

First aid boxes contain items recommended by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), such as bandages, wound dressings, sterile eye pads, safety pins and plasters.

No medicines like aspirins, paracetamol, ointments or other medication are kept in the first aid box.

First aid personnel are trained only in the administration of first aid, not to administer drugs or medicines.
