About Hand on Heart
Hi I'm Melissa, Director and Trainer of Hand on Heart First Aid.
If you chose respond, then I can help you! I'm passionate about educating others on the importance of first aid, the difference it can make in an emergency situation and sharing my knowledge and experiences.
My background is predominantly in the critical care field specialising in Accident & Emergency. There's not much I haven't seen - from fractures on the field (or trampoline) through to trauma and sudden cardiac arrest.
My team of Trainers share similar medical backgrounds, are actively working in healthcare today and are familiar with emerging medical situations.
In an emergency, your first response is to remain calm, assess the situation, respond and give comfort until the Emergency Medical Team arrive.
Allow me to share my passion with you.
It was a truly invaluable learning experience for me and my two children. Melissa and Kelly were very clear and patient as they guided us through the course, answering any questions we had. We all gained a lot of knowledge, practical skills and the confidence to know how to act in a situation where first aid may be required.
