Medacs Healthcare

Free Basic Life Support training

Medacs Academy logo-small.jpgAn up to date Basic Life Support qualification is a minimum annual, practically assessed, renewal requirement to work in the NHS and is therefore a mandatory requirement of all Medacs Healthcare locum doctors. To support doctors with this, Medacs Healthcare runs free Basic Life Support courses regularly across numerous locations. 

Each course lasts approximately two hours and is worth two CPD points towards revalidation. The feedback from many of our doctors is that they find the course engaging and a good way to refresh their memory as well as it being a way to validate that they are doing things properly.
