Overview: - Whilst we don’t expect things to go wrong, sometimes they do!  A colleague feels

                       unwell, you find someone who has had a fall, someone in your group collapses and

                       stops breathing!  The course focuses on how to deal with incidents when

                       professional help may not be close at hand.

                      This course provides a systematic approach that develops your skills progressively.

                       A blend of learning to help to remember what to do along with plenty of opportunities

                       to practice.
