 St John has been delivering first aid and community medical support services to the NSW community for over 130 years. The scope of these services has grown to include:

- Event health services, keeping people safe at events right across NSW, ranging from small local gatherings to large scale events 

- Equipping individuals, families and workplaces with high quality first aid products and services 

- Working alongside emergency services organisations in times of need and disasters 

- Workplace health services such as contracted paramedic services and temperature testing
