If you require first aid cover, St John's Ambulance Service can provide first aid services at events. You can submit an enquiry online, and they will carry out a risk assessment and quote you for the level of cover that they recommend. You can also contact their London Events Team through firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 0303 003 0101.
