The British Red Cross and four TikTok doctors have launched a first aid channel on TikTok, helping the nation to stay safe this lockdown, as the NHS faces increased pressure from the coronavirus pandemic.
Dr Alex, Dr Julie, Dr Emeka and Dr Karan Raj star in a range of short educational videos on the Red Cross’s ‘First Aid Toolkit’ - a TikTok channel dedicated to helping people learn vital first aid skills.
The charity says learning first aid is more important than ever – for reasons you may not have realised.
As well as providing a worthwhile distraction from the boredom of lockdown, learning a new skill can give a much needed psychological boost. Mastering first aid also helps people feel more in control of their health, at a time of upheaval and uncertainty.
