We can’t wait for our next CPR update in December – hopefully presented again by Chris Kurt-Gabel… it’s the highlight of our year! Chris always lead an action and information packed afternoon of theory, practice and fun – including surprise scenarios that we have to jump in and deal with. Their instruction is clear; their info is up to date; and they insist that we demonstrate our understanding and skills to a high standard. We always end up with the confidence that we can make a difference and really save lives…

Nuffield health appointed A to E as its resuscitation provider in 2017 and since that time, A to E have fully supported us in various ways. This includes the provision of training, policy, construction and simulation activity. A to E have adopted an agile and flexible approach and where able attempted to fully meet our needs. We have been very impressed by their senior leadership team and their commitment towards improving standards and driving clinical excellence. They are an open and transparent organisation that will put patient safety above all else.
