Medical Emergencies Response Training (MERT) Courses for Dental Practices

Meeting your CQC requirements.

Annual Basic Life Support and Medical Emergency Training as recommended by the General Medical Council (GDC) and British Dental Association

Our fully qualified instructors will come to your practice to deliver the training in your workplace, adding realism and offering actual workplace orientated scenarios. Our approach saves you travelling costs and reduces staff training time.

Our first aid training courses fulfil all of the requirements recommended by the CQC, BDA, GDC and the Resuscitation Council UK:

  • All primary care dental facilities should have a process for medical risk-assessment of their patients.
  • Specific resuscitation equipment should be available immediately in all primary care dental premises. This equipment list should be standardised throughout the UK.
  • All clinical areas should have immediate access to an automated external defibrillator (AED).
  • Primary dental care providers, general dental practitioners and all other dental healthcare professionals should undergo training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) including basic airway management and the use of an AED.
  • Each primary dental care facility should have a plan for summoning assistance in the event of a cardiorespiratory arrest. For most practices this will mean calling 999 immediately.
  • There should be regular practice and teaching using simulation-based cardiorespiratory arrest scenarios.
  •  Dental staff’s knowledge and skills in resuscitation should be updated at least annually.

Our First Aid Training Courses

“Highly recommended for CPR, Medical emergency & AED training. I have no hesitation recommending Bruce and his team for your training needs.

We recently instructed Bruce to provide this training at 2 of our dental practices and it was the most simple, straight forward, sensible training we have ever had. No endless stream of statistics that might cloud your judgement if you ever find yourself in an emergency situation, but advice that left all our team members confident they could actually help and make a difference if they needed to both at work or outside of the practice.The training is given in a fun way which stopped staff falling asleep, but contained everything we needed to know.

We enjoyed it so much I am booking next years training now- something I have never done before! I can honestly say Loch Health are a pleasure to do business with”

  • Maintaining the knowledge and competence to deal with medical emergencies is an important part of all dental professionals CPD”

    Hew Mathewson President GDC
  • ‘A patient could collapse on any premises at any time, whether they have received treatment or not. It is therefore essential that ALL registrants are trained in dealing with medical emergencies, including resuscitation, and possess up to date evidence of capability.’
