Colmed Group provides School & Education First Aid, a service tailored to the need of each individual school or educational institution. All schools have a primary responsibility and duty of care to their students to ensure their safety during each school day.
This duty extends to when the students are participating in extra-curricular school activities such as school sports. Colmed Group provides immediate medical attention and school first aid response to students when participating in school sporting events, fetes, festivals and carnivals. Colmed Group provides teachers, parents and students with peace of mind, knowing that if an injury occurs, immediate first aid medical attention is on hand to ensure that the risk of further harm to the injured person is minimised. A dedicated Colmed Group School First Aid Team on hand at school carnivals and sporting events relieves the first aid responder burden from parents and teachers and allows for a professional and calm response to situations where students might sustain injuries.

SICK BAY FIRST AID OFFICER & SCHOOL NURSE RELIEF – SHORT TERM OR LONG TERM COVER
School& Education First Aid includes relief of school nursing staff for your school sick bay. Our Registered Nurses or other qualified medical personnel hold the experience and qualifications to ensure your school does not go uncovered.
Whether covering for sick leave with as little as an hour’s notice, or planned leave, Colmed can assist. In this age of litigation, it is insufficient to have a parent or teacher trained in first aid on hand at school organised events. A parent or teacher cannot be guaranteed to remain calm and assess the situation professionally, especially where the injury might be to that parent’s child or that teacher’s pupil.
Our qualified health professionals include Medical Doctors, Registered Nurses, Paramedics and trained First Aid Medics who can be on stand-by to provide you with peace of mind and ensure the safety of your students. Colmed Group can help with your first aid requirements relating to any school event, function, sports carnival or school camp anywhere throughout Australia and internationally.
