Thanks for a truly inspiring course delivered by a superb faculty of experts in Human Factors. This was probably the most professionally run course I have attended in my 36 years in the health service. Although the course was hard work, I thoroughly enjoyed it and feel much better prepared to deliver Human Factors training within my trust.

A great day, very informative, invaluable to the job I do and should be mandatory for all healthcare team members.

I am optimistic that this training will have profound benefits for our culture. Watch this space.
