"I really enjoyed my time at the PHTLS First Responder course. The lecturers were very entertaining and delivered the course information in a very memorable way. I now feel much more confident for when the time comes that I will need to put this knowledge into practice."
Junior Doctor Natasha Haran, Plymouth University Hospital
