First Aid for Children with CPR
Christa van Ryneveld: Grade 1 teacher and head of Junior Prep WPPS
‘The course instructor was charismatic, hands-on and very knowledgeable. The staff were give the opportunity to put into practice what they had learnt and ask questions throughout the session. The course was conducted in a professional manner and the procedures were clear and easy to understand. The afternoon was engaging and we felt confident that we would know what to do in situations requiring medical intervention. We highly recommend this team.’

‘I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful assistance and wanted to compliment you on Saturday’s training.
It was loads of fun and we learnt so much! I am glad we did the course. Yes, we were motivated by our Vitality Status – to push the points so that we can get to gold. But we also have two small children and th knowledge gained is priceless. Points or no points I will do it every second year and will highly recommend your practice to all my friends and family.’

Thanks so much for my certificate and for forwarding my details to Discovery for the points!
I wanted to mention that Ayesha was fantastic! She kept us entertained with pertinent real-life examples and role plays and for those of us that have attended a good few of these workshops in our lives … she brought some freshness and fun to the course without compromising on the serious reasons for acquiring this knowledge! Please pass on our heartfelt thanks to her … from us all!!’

Thank you for yesterday Vanessa. You were outstanding in the way you delivered the course.
I signed up for Vitality Points but took out a lot more than that. I have been to many courses and get distracted easily, however yesterday you had my attention for the full duration. Your energy is positive, warm and overall fantastic. Many thanks once again.’
Basic First Aid for Adults with CPR

The course was awesome! Your instructor was absolutely excellent, standing in the baking sun for 4 hours so we could be shaded. Laughed & learned. Perfect combo! Very impressed & highly recommend it to everyone I know.’

‘An excellent training course. That’s why we keep sending our staff and new interns. Hence, I am even encouraging individuals in my personal circle to attend. Professional as always and presenting at just the right level – the course has a great energy and flow.’
Praise for ERAS from patients
I was very impressed by the ERAS program. It certainly made the Op and aftercare much easier to handle. Many Thanks to all involved.
the care I received was exceptional; and the ERAS system inspired huge confidence and gave me great reassurance that there was a large interdisciplinary team of professionals taking a real and active interest in my wellbeing. I feel privileged to have been part of this program – a big thank you to all concerned!
I felt the ERAS team prepared me very well in advance, I was very content and much comforted by their visits during my few days in hospital and the constant contact & advice once I was out. I also highly rate those ‘magic’ powders to be taken 3 x daily for 5 days prior to the operation and the 2 Pre-op nutricia drinks just before. I have recommended this excellent professional service to all my friends, both in the medical world and out! Thank you!
Community Healthcare Training
Di Forrester Westlake United Church Trust
WUCT carers have attended numerous training workshops run by 2 Professional Nursing Sisters, namely Fiona Pieterse and Vanessa Pickford, both with ICU and extensive training experience, whose company is called Safe-Med.
The workshops focused on hygiene, bed washes, CPR for adults, children and babies, choking, heart attacks, strokes and wound dressings and more. Needless to say, the workshops have been extremely informative and the carers learnt a lot from these very professional and experienced nursing sisters. We would like to thank them for coming and training our carers and look forward to the next training workshop.’
