Medical emergencies course for Dentists

The GDC and the Resuscitation Council (UK) set out what training they expect staff in dental practices to have with regard to medical emergencies.  Orchard Training Services is a specialist provider of resuscitation and medical emergency training to health professionals.  As a specialist we understand your working practices and your statutory training requirements, this course therefore covers all your required elements.

Our medical emergencies course for dentists is suitable for the whole team as Helen is used to educating mixed groups.  The course can be provided at a time convenient to you and your team on your site.  This enables discussion of your working environment and your available emergency equipment.  Helen prides herself on the level of service offered and also provides on-going support and an advice service for her customers.  Read more about what her customers say here.
