About our Annual CPR Update Courses for Doctors, Dentists and other Healthcare Professionals

We offer private CPR, AED and BLS first aid training at your practice or health centre across the UK, in association with Focus Training, members of the First Aid Training Co-operative and specialists in the sector.

Annual Medical Emergency CPD training is a requirement for Healthcare Professionals such as Clinical staff at health centres, surgeries and General Practices. Non clinical staff who work in practices should complete the training every 3 years as a minimum.  

Our CPR and AED course is almost entirely practical and covers Basic Life Support, CPR & AED. We can include some paediatric elements for practices that work with children too.  

Whilst satisfying their annual Medical Emergency CPD Training requirements, and receiving all the latest essential Basic Life Support updates, our clients love the opportunity to practice CPR rather than just watching a trainer do it. They also find that practice using one of our trainer AEDs in small groups is really valuable.

How to Book a Course for Your Medical Practice

Our private healthcare professional focused first aid courses are delivered at your practice or surgery, at a time and date to suit you, at locations across the UK.

You can tell us what you’d like included and how much time you will have available, we’ll come to you and tailor your course to suit your specific situation. Generally courses are from 1 – 3 hours long to fit into your practice’s schedule and start at £250+VAT for up to 12 participants at your venue.

This course will empower yourself and your team to feel confident, should the worst happen.

Recommendations for Annual CPD

Guidance from the Resuscitation Council for Doctors, General Practitioners, and other Clinical Staff

The Resuscitation Council UK Quality standards for Primary Care state that “All staff in a primary care organisation, including non-clinical staff, should undergo regular training in resuscitation of both adults and children to the level appropriate to their role.” “Clinical staff should have at least annual updates.” and “Non-clinical staff generally should have annual updates also. However, a local risk assessment may be undertaken to assess the likelihood of them encountering a patient requiring resuscitation

Guidance from the Resuscitation Council for Dentists and Dental Surgery Staff

The Resuscitation Council UK Quality standards for Primary Dental Care state that “Primary dental care providers, general dental practitioners and all other dental healthcare professionals should undergo training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) including basic airway management and the use of an AED“.

General guidance from the Resuscitation Council on AED provision

The general public expects AEDs to be available in every healthcare setting. All clinical areas should have immediate access to an automated external defibrillator (AED).

It is recommended that clinical staff participate in ‘Hands-on’ simulation training and assessment. This training should be undertaken annually.

Guidance from the General Dental Council

As a dental professional you must plan your CPD activity. The GDC has identified CPD topics that relate to many dental professionals in their field of practice.

Testimonial – A. Moore

Great trainers both; glad they did the 1.5 hr course with child CPR/AED as they'd not had that before (we also did choking); Matt was very good, covered things well and explained them clearly; very enjoyable session; staff all said it was really good.
