Life-saving bleed control kit installed at Rugby Railway Station

Rugby Editorial 25th Sep, 2023   0

A LIFE-SAVING bleed control kit has been installed at Rugby Railway Station to spread awareness of their importance.

Avanti West Coast has joined forces with The Daniel Baird Foundation to provide additional protection for passengers and staff.

The bleed kits will sit alongside existing first aid provision at stations and be accessible for employees to use in emergencies.

The foundation was set up by Lynne Baird in 2017 to promote better access to bleed kits in the West Midlands, following the tragic death of her son Daniel.

Since then, Lynne’s passion and energy – for which she received an MBE in 2022 – has seen over 10,000 kits introduced in public places across the UK.

Lynne Baird said: “People shouldn’t just associate a catastrophic bleed to a stabbing. There are many other causes such as from a car accident or a work-related injury.

“We believe that having publicly accessible bleeding control packs in public places such as railway stations is vital.

“They provide the necessary first aid to help reduce blood loss until professional medical help arrives and I can’t thank Avanti West Coast enough for their support.”
