Greenbank Primary: First Aid Brought to Life is a narrative non-fiction that tells a story. It tells a story of a town called Humphrington, a school called Greenbank Primary and the Matthews family engaging with family, friends and teachers. The main theme throughout the book is 'what can you, as a 10-12 year old person, do to give first aid in a medical emergency?' What are the simple key actions that you could take to help someone recover from a serious asthma attack, seizure, severe wound, broken limb and even drowning and cardiac arrest? Given that success rates in the UK for survival outside of hospital for cardiac arrest are below 10% there is a need for knowledge especially at a young age. In countries that invest in training young children in life saving skills, survival rates are far better than the UK. This book aims for improvement.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"I really applaud your approach to teaching the fundamentals of First Aid to primary school children, in the format of a story, it's brilliant." Sir Alex Ferguson CBE; "One of the key things the Danny Jones Trust strives to get across regarding First Aid survival rates is a belief that educating young people in responding effectively to any medical emergencies they might experience throughout their lives is the way forward to improving survival rates. Greenbank Primary School is a book that illustrates that very point with its entertaining and easily understood outlining of the key principles involved for younger school children: It matches our motto of 'Teach our children, change our future' and I am very happy to support the book." Lizzie Jones; "Having experienced a cardiac arrest and being saved I know, first hand, the importance of first aid training. Simon Daniels saved my life that day by performing CPR. We need to train our children early in their development to learn life saving skills. This is what Greenbank Primary School: First Aid Brought to Life is encouraging. It is a book that will link well into the curriculum in primary schools in particular. Children will soak this knowledge up and it will give them confidence in assessing and performing basic life-saving skills. Children are not afraid of these issues and as adults will be less hesitant in being involved in giving basic first aid. This book can make a big difference to our ability to save lives in the UK going forward. We really need to do this as evidence from Scandinavian countries and some states in the USA show that because they train their children from an early age survival rates for cardiac arrest outside of hospital are far better than ours." Glenn Hoddle;
