Reviews

'I can honestly say that if you're in health and social care, and are passionate about the job you do and how well you do it, you will get a lot from this book. And that holds true whether you're new to social care, or if you just want to brush up your prior knowledge.'

'This is an excellently interesting and informative workbook which should carry social care workers easily and encouragingly through to practical understanding and application of basic and essential H&S skills.'
