East Anglia First Aid - Health Care Professionals
East Anglia First Aid  - Providing professional service without compromise
Health Care Professional Training
Whether you are a dentist, GP, nurse or allied health care professional we fully appreciate the need to remain competent in all aspects of resuscitation when delivering health care services to the public.
We also understand the demands this can create for health care organisations to provide access to high quality training that offers value for money yet is flexibile to fit in with the needs of your service. 
We have devised a number of courses which give the depth of knowledge that is required to keep those essential competencies up to date and to the standard that the public expect, but with no compromise in the quality. All courses can be delivered as a stand alone or added together according to your needs.
In order to offer total convenience we specialise in providing on-site training, if there is enough space we can bring the course and equipment to your workplace at a time and date suited to work around your professional commitments.
All content of our courses are taught in line with current Resuscitation Council 2010 guidelines and are compliant with requirements of governing bodies such as GDC, NMC, HPC, GMC.
All available courses are listed below. Please contact us for further details and prices.
