About the Company
Award Winning Leading Training Company Specialising in Providing Training for Healthcare Professionals.
The vendor established this profitable business with other medical and nursing partners in 1999. In 2002 she took over the business and has expanded it to build a solid reputation for delivering high quality training and education across the south west peninsula.
The company has now built a strong niche market and is a unique position of being the sole provider of foundation courses to the NHS in the field of cervical sample taker training in the south west peninsula and Somerset. She also is one of only two Approved Quality providers (AQPs) in Wessex.
This is a three yearly contract to the company and not to the owner. This position involves invitations to attend quarterly NHS cancer screening meetings which is a measure of the regard and the value that the company brings to the NHS.
The vendor’s nursing background enabled her to continue the excellent relationships that had been established within the NHS for many years whilst working in primary care. This led to the company being commissioned by the NHS to provide a range of training solutions that especially focused on primary care. With a group of long serving self employed, regularly used expert consultants, the company delivers a range of courses that address local and national requirements It also has a history of providing funded health education international projects in various countries. The company remains with various international agencies as being available for future short term projects.
Since taking over the company the vendor has expanded the business to provide training outside of the south west to other NHS organisations and this has been enhanced by the development and provision of an online update training programme for cervical sample takers in 2009.
This cost saving initiative for health authorities has opened up the market to areas outside of the south west and requests now come from across the country. Cervical sample taker training is monitored carefully by the Public Health England (PHE) previously known as NHS Regional Quality Assurance Reference Centre and the vendor liaises constantly with laboratory staff and cancer screening staff to ensure safe practice and a reliable service. The vendor currently takes control of this important side of the business. However, this requires a buyer who does not necessarily need to be a health professional but someone who pays attention to detail with good administration skills and with a knowledge of the NHS.
In addition to providing both foundation courses and numerous updates each year in cervical sample taker training, the company also provides a range of essential continuing professional development (CPD) training for primary care staff. Such courses include immunisations, travel health, sexual health and contraception updates that are delivered by its external consultants.
