First aid in the Practice

Our First Aid in the Practice training has been created and developed to combine with your annual CPR training.  This ensures an overall program of core Continuing Professional Development (CPD) designed just for your practice.

All Lubas trainers are Advanced First Aid Instructors and Medical Professionals. We combine real-life experience with interactive, practical training delivered in the friendly and relaxed manner our customers have come to love and expect.

Our combined CPD and First Aid Training sessions ensure you can provide the best possible treatment and care for your patients and colleagues.

As part of the service, we also help you review your medical equipment and provide valuable advice and support, ensuring you are fully prepared to manage a medical emergency both in and out of the dental surgery.

Who Should Attend

As our First Aid courses are designed to combine with your annual CPR training, we recommend all practice staff attend. This ensures a first aider is always at hand and covers holidays, absences and sickness. If you wish to train less staff you should carry out a risk assessment to determine how many first aiders are required in your practice. You must have adequate first aid provisions in the practice at all times.

Duration of the Course

Due to the annual 3 hours of CPR training your staff receive, First Aid in the Practice is delivered in 4 hours.
