CitizenAID is part of The Queen Elizabeth Hospital Charity, Birmingham. Their website outlines their aims: 

"citizenAID™ is the initiative of four deeply experienced UK civilian and military clinicians working in collaboration with industry to improve public resilience.

When there is a shooting, stabbing or bomb explosion the initial priority will be public safety. This can delay the time before the emergency services are able to reach the injured. citizenAID™ enables the general public to be effective in these situations before the emergency services are available to provide professional medical support."

David Lockey, Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care Chairman stated, "The Faculty are very supportive of the concept and aims of CitizenAID."


The citizenAID App can be downloaded free from either Google Play, Apple App or the Windows store.
