The level of teaching was outstanding and this really showed in the exam marks. The trainer’s enthusiasm for First Aid really shone through and this in turn motivated the group to learn, practise and ask as many questions as possible. […]. The instructor passed on expertise in such a way that did not alienate anyone even though it was a diverse group of people from all parts of the business. The examiners were wonderful, giving us extra tips and advice once we had passed; this gave everyone confidence in their new skills and will allow us as individuals to handle a first aid situation.

Additional Information

The Human Medicines (Amendment) Regulations 2017 will come into force on 1st October 2017. They state that:
  • Schools in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will be able to purchase, without a named individual prescription, adrenaline auto-injectors to keep as spares on site to use in an emergency situation
  • The intention is that the spare adrenaline auto-injector would be used for administration to a pupil at that school who is known to be at risk of anaphylaxis and who requires the medicinal product in an emergency
  • The amendments to the legislation do not make it a requirement that schools have a spare, they simply allow for schools to choose to do this based on their own assessments and discretion
