What is Medication Administration? 

Over 237 million medication errors are estimated to happen each year in the UK. That's a startling estimate, especially considering there is less than 70 million living in the country.  
 
Medication administration training has been designed to help deal with this issue. Our training not only teaches your staff how to safely administer medication, but also how to store, dispose and understand it too.

Training with the Leicestershire Training Team 

 
Training is one of the most important aspects of anyone's working life, however it is commonly a source of boredom, resulting in a poor retainment of information. This is why we started thinking about training differently. For us, the training needs to be engaging as well as informative, so what you learn today, will be remembered tomorrow.  
 
Training with us is a unique experience, with a potent mixture of fun, interactivity, real life experience and expert advice. We only use trained professionals, such as our nurse trainers, to deliver our training. This way you are taught by someone with real hands on experience.
