RTACC Trauma First Aid Course

RTACC Trauma First Aid course – please note that some of these training scenario images may be upsetting as we use real people, and realistic make up and props.

Congratulations to the 16 candidates who passed their RTACC (Rescue, Trauma and Casualty Care) course over the weekend of 24-25 February. It’s an intense couple of days that definitely takes the candidates out of their comfort zones, but a fabulous course run by the team’s HCPs. Huge thanks go to all involved in running the course, especially our superb make up artist and volunteer casualties who thoroughly enjoy getting into character to make it all as realistic as possible.
