Although the latest update to the First Aid Manual was only released last year, they are already thinking about the next one. See news on the current version, and how the first aid quiz website was also updated.
As a St John Ambulance trainer I’ve been invited to give feedback on the current First Aid Manual, for the initial planning of the next version. At the moment I think they are just getting together ideas and looking at the layout of the new manual. As far as I’m aware there are no updates to the protocols that warrants a new manual just yet.
I’m sure that there is never a time to relax with developing updates to the first aid manual, to keep it as the definitive source for anyone learning first aid.
