Crossing boundaries: the history of first aid in Britain and France, 1909-1989

Over the past two decades, historians have developed a detailed picture of primary and secondary healthcare growth in the UK. This focus on professional, institutional care, however, has neglected personal, voluntary and communitarian forms of healthcare – first aid. Studying the course of non-institutional treatment across the 20th century can help to illuminate where state provision, individual responsibility and voluntary action border each other. It can also help to inform responses to the pressures on GPs’ surgeries and accident and emergency departments. The research team will focus on initial treatment of minor injuries and techniques for basic life support undertaken by people other than recognised medical professionals. A large part of their study will be the first aid activity and diffusion of first aid knowledge conducted by the British Red Cross. The typicality of the UK experience will be considered through an examination of the development of non-professional treatment in France.
