The Resus Nelson team came to our Dental Surgery to update our CPR skills and Emergency Response Procedures. There were 15 of us present and Natalie and Rosie were very professional and well up to date with current Codes of Practice. They taught using real life situations in the Surgery environments which were informative, relevant to our Practice and presented in a way that was a relaxed and fun learning experience. We would not hesitate to use their Services again and to recommend them to other businesses. - Claire Hayes, Nelson Dental Centre
