Lynskeys provides fully accredited training courses covering many aspects of healthcare and delivered by experienced professionals.
Many of our courses are specific to social care settings and provide essential training for carers and nurses. Subjects include medicines management, and managing long term conditions such as diabetes and stroke.
Each trainee receives a learning guide and a learning portfolio, along with a certificate on passing their course, as well as continued support. We are careful to design our courses to meet the individual needs of each delegate, so that they can be transferred easily into the care setting, in line with legislation.
Examples of our healthcare training courses:
