Is your first aid kit summer-holiday ready?

NHS Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are advising families to stock up their medicine cabinets and first aid kits with essentials to help them deal with any minor accidents or injuries that may occur at home or on holiday.

Essentials items for every household include: 

•    First aid kit (including bandages, plasters and antiseptic wipes)

•    Sunscreen (keep a sun location of at least factor 15)

•    Antihistamine tablets (useful for dealing with insect bites and allergies such as hay fever)

•    Anti-diarrhoea tablets,
