Hosted by TV medic, Dr Ranj, the free, interactive hour-long programme will be filmed in front of a live audience of students and streamed directly to classrooms via the internet on Friday June 17.

Dr Ranj said: “As a doctor, I know only too well how important first aid can be in an emergency.

“Being able to immediately help someone – a family member, school mate, a neighbour, or even a stranger – can be life saving. But you don’t have to be a medic like me to learn or use it.
