First Aid has largely remained unchanged since it’s adaptation into law in 1981. Our focus is to streamline training to include everyone


As an industry, Health & Safety seems inflexible. We approach it with open ears, listening to your concerns and acting on them to build a safety culture

Our Story

Compassion Medical came into existence from a purpose and desire to change the world of First Aid. The concept first started as a way to provide the volunteer market with the necessary training and support to provide help where it was needed. It was soon discovered that the First Aid industry had not experienced any major changes since its induction into legislation in 1981.

Looking at the term “Compassion” was first, finding its root in the Latin term “Compassio”, which meant “to have sympathy on” or “to take pity”. As it moved through the various languages, its root adjusted to a first person view, turning into “to empathise” or “to suffer with”. It inspired the ethos of the company as it finally settled on “to love together with”, meaning to be right there with you. And so, Compassion Medical began its journey.

As the company has moved on, we learned and analysed techniques and skills, knowledge and guidelines to create influence in the three main sectors of training, First Aid, Healthcare and the Health & Safety subjects. Innovation soon set in, where we introduced solutions using technology and support to maximise the care given at point of contact.

As we move into the future, we plan to build a solid foundation in First Aid, change Healthcare delivery and support employers and employees alike in the workplace to make better choices about safety.
