Feedback received from group training session for Support Workers

 

"I attended Epilepsy training yesterday and would just like to give you the feedback that it was great. The Trainer is a brilliant teacher and the whole session was very relevant to all staff – including mental health. Many years ago I spent 3 years training as a Psychopaedic nurse and education around epilepsy, seizures etc was a large part of this, therefore I was a little sceptical as to how much I would learn. However I was bowled over by what I was hearing yesterday. Ian was able to relate to all in the room and spoke in a very down to earth, practical language. I am sharing this feedback with anyone I can think off as I was so impressed"
