As you will be aware, the health and social care sector (like others) is working hard to maintain essential services in what are extremely challenging times. Whilst the manner in which many of us work is being adapted in line with current Government and Public Health England guidance, it is recognised that much of the work we undertake can’t simply just stop. So, there is a balance to be had between ensuring, as far as possible, the wellbeing of everyone (especially vulnerable people) and maintaining vital services. I am committed to maintaining as many of the services I provide throughout this period of uncertainty whilst acting responsibly to help ensure the safety of those I work with, vulnerable people and their carers.

To this end, until further notice, the following will apply:

Where possible, I will assess and consult people using non face-to-face methods such as Skype and telephone calls. Sometimes this is not possible and, in those situations, where safe to do so, I will continue with a face-to-face approach. If this is required, current Government guidelines will be followed. Whichever method will be adopted will depend entirely upon the nature and urgency of the work and will be discussed with the instructing party and care providers where applicable.

I wish you a safe and healthy time as we work together over the coming months,

Best Wishes, Gary.

Mental Capacity and Best Interests Train the Trainer

All of our training can now be booked as a face-to-face course (subject to COVID-19 safety measures) and virtually over the Zoom platform.

If you own a care home, nursing home or manage one, we understand how tight training budgets can be.  That’s why we’ve developed a Mental Capacity and Best Interests train the trainer course. Unlike our other training courses, individual places are available on this course. Please contact us if you are interested in this course or would like this course delivered to your staff. Due to the design of this course, places are strictly limited to 15 but can run from as few as 8 people.

The courses is 3 days long and provides delegates with all the knowledge and skills they need to be able to teach a half-day MCA or full-day MCA & Best Interests course to individuals and groups at your workplace. Day 2 of the course is the complete course that delegates will be teaching so there’s plenty of opportunity to brush up your skills before the end of the course. No teaching experience is necessary because day 1 covers learning styles and teaching methods that we use ourselves so we know they work! At the end of the course, you’ll not only get a certificate of completion of the 1 day Mental Capacity Act & Best Interests and a 3 day MCA & Best Interests Train the Trainer Certificate but also an electronic version of the half-day and full-day courses that you can use yourselves when teaching or adapt to meet your specific needs.
