  • Fionnuala Carty (Centre of Learning & Development, St James’s Hospital)
    All participants enjoyed the programme and felt they gained a lot from the three days. One had to use the skills they learned almost immediately as they witnessed a young man collapse in a coffee shop.  Look forward to welcoming back the trainers in the near future.
