Patricia Everett - First Aid Trainer

Patricia Everett

Having seen the benefits of first aid training, in giving individuals the knowledge and confidence to help in an emergency, I think it's important that as many of us as possible gain these skills.

My career as a nurse in both hospitals and schools has given me both the knowledge and practical experience to deliver first aid training in a way that is effective, practical and fun.


I have worked in busy hospital environments across many areas, including Accident and Emergency, Intensive Care, High Dependency and on a variety of wards. It's certainly been an interesting and challenging career, working alongside many dedicated and skilled colleagues.

I started teaching first aid in a school setting, delivering courses to various staff members, from maintenance teams to headteachers. It was through this that I realised how important it was to make training practical and fun in order to engage trainees and build their confidence.

Having a degree in psychology is highly useful when it comes to delivering our Mental Health First Aid courses.  

I am passionate about using my skills and knowledge to make first aid accessible to everyone, so that as individuals we can ‘make a difference’ when it matters most.

Regardless of age, ‘Train For Life’ is the mindset I want to instil in all my first aid students. I believe that having the knowledge and practical skills to deal with any emergency first aid situation, will result in successful outcomes in the workplace, at home or in a social environment.

My passion is to make training fun, enjoyable and build confidence to removing the fear of “what if I do something wrong” or “I don’t know what to do” by equipping both adults and children with those important skills and knowledge, so they know exactly what they can do to help an injured or sick person or to save a life.


I am a highly experienced Customer Services Professional, specialising in First Aid training and staff development. Throughout my 36-year career, in both nursing and as a Senior Cabin Crew Member for a major airline, I have been involved in training and coaching; helping my colleagues to reach their full potential within the workplace. I have also worked in many environments delivering First Aid.

Having decided to ‘hang up my wings’, I’m really excited about having the opportunity to share my knowledge and expertise in delivering First Aid Training to a wider audience in Local Businesses, Schools, and within the Community.
