Stay safe and well 


Hi all thank you for checking out our site and I hope everyone is still safe and well.

OK so now things have changed again. The government has now reduced social groups to 6 people however this does NOT apply to education and training so we are finally able to start running public courses at our usual venue in Lympstone Devon. Courses will soon be available in some Shropshire and North Wales areas too.

Dates will soon be added for public courses however we will be contacting clients who had courses cancelled first. Spaces will be limited due to the reduction in group size to meet the new procedures we must use.

First aid is a physically interactive course and we are still required to use the 2 metres distancing, or 1 metre with extra precautions. This will mean smaller groups in many cases due to the size of venues.


Please contact us to arrange your in-house course or for details on public courses:

All certificates have an extended validity to the 30th September, Paediatric First Aid, valid until the 25th of November, however I would advise candidates who have had to postpone their training to study their previous course manuals to refresh their knowledge.

Schools & Nurseries may need to review their medication policy in light of recent information. Doctors are being advised by their government advisory body not to write prescriptions for OTC meds.

MHRA licenses all medicines and classifies them as OTC when it considers it safe and appropriate that they may be used without a prescription.

It is appropriate therefore for OTC medicines to be given, or authorised, by parents when they consider it necessary. This may be in a home or nursery or school environment.

LMC’s who advise GP’s would therefore consider it a misuse of GP time to provide an appointment for a child with the sole purpose of acquiring a prescription for an OTC medicine, to satisfy the ruling of a nursery or school.
