Senior Australian of the Year Val Dempsey says it was “wonderful” to receive encouragement from the Queen for her idea for first aid training to be included in Australian driving tests.

Ms Dempsey’s video call with the Queen, which featured other Australians of the Year, was released during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

“I could see that she absolutely appreciated the idea of people learning first aid,” Ms Dempsey told Sky News host Chris Kenny.

“We really do know that those first five to seven minutes, to ten minutes, at the scene of an accident, is absolutely life-saving time before the ambulance arrives.”
