The number of ambulances that have bariatric capability has risen dramatically in the last year or so.


It is interesting to note however that the area with the largest population, the North East, has the lowest number of bariatric equipped vehicles.


The increase in plus sized people, whether you are an ambulance trust, care agency or any other kind of healthcare provider, should be reflected in the training you offer.


If you would like me to come along and deliver bariatric training for you please give me a call. It really is worth the extra investment to include Tracey Carr in your training. Having a live bariatric model in the training makes great sense. Her insight into various issues makes the day one to remember.
