Review: I recently attended a Medicine Course on behalf on my care agency. I have attended many of these courses, but I have to say this was by far the most informative and presented in such a different way that it was really interesting and I am sure a lot of very useful tips came our way by the trainer.

I know we are not meant to mention our trainer but the lady we had was so approachable and such fun it made an otherwise tedious part of our training really good. Ten out of ten for the trainer and I hope she comes many more times to our training sessions. I am sure I speak to all the other people who attended her course yesterday in Felpham, near Bognor Regis.
