StreetDoctors is a national charity made up of local teams of healthcare students- here at Barts and the London, we teach in and around East London. We teach lifesaving first aid skills to 11-25 year olds at risk of youth violence and aim to provide a safe space to explore attitudes to violence.
Violence is the third leading cause of death of young people in Europe. Some of these deaths happen because the people present do not know what to do; they panic and don’t call for help. StreetDoctors sessions give young people the vital skills and confidence to act when someone is bleeding or unconscious. Teaching these young people to call 999 and effectively deliver simple first aid can and does save lives.
In these uncertain times, we are not sure exactly what our recruitment will look like this year, and have also yet to decide exactly when this will happen!
