Liverpool welcomes KnifeSavers campaign with the launch of the Prometheus Bleed Control Kits

With the number of knife-related crimes rising throughout the UK, Liverpool has today launched the KnifeSavers Prometheus Bleed Control Kits within its city centre and surrounding areas. 

The KnifeSavers initiative lead by Mr Nikhil Misra, a Consultant General and Trauma Surgeon at Aintree Hospital has donated 100 of the Prometheus Bleed Control Kits to various locations across the region and aims to educate the public and non-medical individuals on how to control extensive haemorrhaging following from a knife-based attack.

The launch, held at Fusion nightclub on Fleet Street in Liverpool will see nightclub security staff, bar owners and workers trained in using the equipment within the kits.

"The initiative is the first in the region to pilot a public access bleed control kit scheme, and here at Prometheus, we are privileged to be supporting such a cause,".  Chairman and Founder of Prometheus Medical, Dr Malcolm Russell MBE continues, saying, “The equipment included in the Bleed Control Kits has been chosen as the best equipment and devices available. Many of the products featured in these kits are carried by front-line ambulance services across the UK, which is testament to how effective they are in stopping a bleed. With the correct equipment, education and techniques applied, we hope that these kits will be able to provide essential help in preventing further fatalities caused by knife crime.”
