View Full Version : NCMA First aid box - very unimpressed!

A while ago I ordered the NCMA first aid box & it's been hooked up on the wall, unused, ever since.

Yesterday DS (age 14) hurt his shoulder & I decided to put it in a sling. (I don't know that he really needed it, but I thought I'd practice my first aid on him :laughing: )

We had no triangular bandages in the family first aid box, so I used one out of the NCMA box. It was RUBBISH!! It was so thin I didn't dare pull it tight incase in ripped. It wasn't a bandage at all, just a triangular shape bit of thin cloth. DS did try tightening it & it did rip. It was in the bin within 5 minutes!

I'm so glad it wasn't a real emergency because I wouldn't like to rely on the stuff in there.

Such a disappointment :(

I expect that these are brought in from a supplier. I would write to NCMA as tell them how unsuitable the item is.
