Could anyone tell me what items are required in my first aid kit please - and also which items need to be 'sterile' - and also the quantities??? (and also any other items that might be useful)

Also what items will I be required to carry in my travel/car/outings first aid kit (& quantities)

I already have several first aid kits and am looking at pulling them together to make my final one but really unsure as there is so much conflicting info

I have just done my first aid course, with St John Ambulance, and in the booklet it has a list of what stuff we should have in there.

I questioned as to whether ofsted actually know also, and apparantly they work with them so should...

So, it's

10 plasters of assorted sizes (hypoalergenic)
3 medium sterile dressings
1 large sterile dressing
3 small sterile dressings
1 ex-large eye bandage
2 triangular bandages
6 safety pins
disposable non-latex gloves
2 small plastic bags (disposal of soiled wipes & dressings)
1 guidance card & contents list

round ended scissors
gauze square swabs
adhesive tape
notepad & pencil (for recording incidents)
resuscutation face shields
