Emergency Bleed Control Kits 🩸
Working with South Yorkshire Violence Reduction Unit, Sheffield City Council and South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA), Sheffield BID is installing 12 emergency bleed control cabinets at locations across the city centre.

About Emergency Bleed Control Kits
The bleed kits were developed by West Midlands Ambulance Service, leading consultants from the Trauma Network and the Daniel Baird Foundation to provide a kit of medical equipment that can be easily used by the public, but can also control a catastrophic bleed.
The kits are widely used across the country and have been used on several occasions to save a patients life.
