The Children's e-Hospital, founded by consultant paediatrician Dr Tim Ubhi, has launched a dedicated first aid kit just for children.

The first aid kit - which has been developed to use alongside the resources on the e-Hospital website - contains over 50 individual pieces together with quick reference flash cards for CPR (resuscitation), sepsis and choking.

Dr Tim Ubhi, consultant paediatrician and founder of The Children's e-Hospital, said:

"Every family should have access to a first aid kit and The Children's e-Hospital pack provides all the essentials to give parents and carers the confidence to manage minor injuries at home and on holiday.

"As well as flash cards - which provide the symptoms to identify more serious health issues such as sepsis - the first aid kit has been digitally integrated with the 'parent information for first aid' section on the website."

The CQC regulated Children's e-Hospital is the first and only online specialist paediatric service anywhere in the world which allows parents to speak to expert paediatric consultants from the comfort of their own home.

The Children's First Aid Kit retails at [pounds sterling]19.99 and can be purchased directly from the website, here: https://www.e-hospital.co.uk/products/paediatric-first-aid-kit/
