What do our customers say...

Even as a carer/manager for 24+ years I have learnt a lot and feel this training will have a positive impact on the people who we support and the staff team

This is an excellent refresher, I feel more confident and able to spread the knowledge to others to prevent pressure ulcers.

I thought I had quite a good understanding and knowledge but I have learnt much more. Very enjoyable session.
