Leading standards

First aider treating patient

By 2022, we will lead on standards of first aid, independent ambulance care and public event healthcare in England to ensure the best outcome for patients.


In 2022, that will mean:

  • • the full integration of physical and mental health within our continued leadership of first aid training in society
  • • our position as the nation’s ambulance auxiliary recognised and reinforced higher standards of public event healthcare across the sector, bringing communities together and relieving local pressure on the NHS
  • • St John is the nation’s leading provider of first aid and first response qualifications.
