Testimonials
  • Before attending the training, I was very apprehensive around the idea of catheterising a young child. However, the training we received on the day was fantastic. The trainer gave us great insight and support during the day. In addition, they promised to follow up support by way of phone call or email anytime. This really put my mind at ease. [After the course] I felt very confident that I was giving the child the best assistance and that their parents benefitted as they too were confident that we had received the best of training. I now perform catheterisation as part of my work duties daily.
