Safety Training: Patient Moving & Handling

Healthcare workers and Carers are involved in moving and handling patients on a daily basis and can be easily injured if the correct equipment/method is not used to aid the moving and handling of patients. This one-day programme is designed to train participants how to handle and move patients with the use of certain equipment and also recommend the best methods /techniques in a manner, which is safe for themselves and their patients.

Patient Moving and Handling Training is extremely useful in reducing the risk of injury to both carers and patients. We use the most up to date equipment and techniques, provide participants with the necessary skills and information to care for patients and clients using a minimal lifting policy.
