‘Very useful to be able to learn these skills as they can impact greatly on care and support’

‘Content and delivery were excellent’

‘The workshop has provided me with a refresher approach regarding MCA, ACP and Communication skills but highlighted weaknesses in areas I thought I was managing. As a professional individual, I have updated my skills, networked with other professionals and utilised the knowledge.’
