First Aid at Work!

The Resuscitation Service is proud to announce that we are now a Qualsafe/Ofqual registered and approved centre. This means we can now run First Aid at Work courses within the Trust.

We will be starting with the one day Emergency First Aid at Work course this year and then expanding into the full 3.5 day First Aid at Work course as well, next year.

First EFAW course is on Monday 11 August 2014, at Devon House, near QEQM. Cost to Trust employees is only £52.

We hope to run at least one course per month. So, get your workplace risk assessments done to see what level of first aid cover your area requires and then contact us to book a place:
