Course reviews

I have worked in health and social care for over 11 years and thought I had a very good knowledge of medicines but this course has provided me with the law side for things and how to challenge a health professional. It has taught me that there are some things that I need to do differently. I thought that the course was going to be someone talking at us for two days but I was very wrong! I really enjoyed myself and definitely recommend it!”

Lisa Burtonwood, Pearl Care

This will surely improve skills and wipe out any bad culture that we follow. It will tell you how important even the little things are and can make an impact on someone’s life.

This is one of the best courses I have ever attended. At no time over the 2 days did I find it boring. TeeJay was a really good trainer who held the attention of the group well. Excellent skills and knowledge.
