Fantastic app, super helpful. Off the top of my head, the only improvement I can think of would be a daily or weekly notification to encourage people to get up to date information and retake tests to refresh their memory. Other than that, this app is brilliant precisely because it does exactly what it's supposed to do, no more, no less.

First class app. The home page lists all types of first aid emergency and clicking on these gives clear guidance on what to do. Having something this straightforward is exactly what you need in an emergency. I keep this app on my phone's home screen just in case.

I would have a toddler category between 1 or 2 & 3 or 4 years old; there is also a difference between infant & baby, just as between embryo & foetus. The smaller the human, the more expertise required. I agree too much reliance (& thus pressure) on 999, and 111 could be incorporated as an alternative for non-emergency situations (eg. Mums panicking over their little darlings). By the way folks, if it's a dire emergency and you really do need an instant response: use 112.
