Our founder Annabel Wood, is a Mum of 2 children aged 11yrs and 3yrs. She is a Registered Nurse with over 20 years experience in the health industry with a special interest in Emergency Care, risk management and children. Her previous experience as Chair Person of a Health & Safety Committee provided an excellent insight into assessing & managing risks, and using education to work towards safer workplaces. this experience together with her positions of Clinical Educator and Clinical Consultant left Annabel feeling frustrated that there were so many people - including children - that were being injured, or becoming seriously sick and eventually coming to hospital only to discover that they had received either ineffective or even NO first aid! This was devastating as it lead to poor outcomes and sometimes event death! But the worst thing was that in many cases, these tragic outcomes could have been prevented if families and bystanders knew what to do in an emergency and how to prevent the risks in the first place.
So the journey began to empower the community with the confidence to save lives through quality First Aid Training and in 2007, "Simply First Aid" was born.
