Several others are in training for their NVQs. All our care staff have to complete our in-house training programme which includes the Protection of Vulnerable Adults, Manual Handling, Infection Control and the Safe Handling of Medicines. There is also a First-Aid person on duty at all times. All our training is constantly being updated to meet the latest requirements and regulations.
