'This course has benefited my practice and provided the knowledge behind some of the courses I have already attended, for example Advanced Life Support. It was well presented and delivered. The supporting materials were readily available on Brightspace and the addition of the reference builder was a huge bonus.' ~ William Lake, Graduated from Acute Care PgCert
