Some clients require more complex care because, in addition to sudden emergencies or worsened conditions, they also have an underlying health issue causing the acute problem. This could be kidney, heart, lung, brain, or chest-related conditions.



Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of our published course information. However, our programmes are subject to ongoing review and development. Changing circumstances may cause alteration to, or the cancellation of, courses. Changes may be necessary to comply with the requirements of accrediting bodies or revisions to subject benchmarks statements. As well as to keep courses updated and contemporary, or as a result of student feedback. We reserve the right to make variations if we consider such action to be necessary or in the best interests of students.
