The All Wales Passport scheme in Manual Handling was originally developed in 2003 by Health and Safety professionals within the NHS Trusts in Wales, to ensure high standards and consistency of manual handling within the NHS in Wales.
The scheme has now been adopted as the standard for manual handling in Wales. An advantage of the scheme is that it enables carers to transfer their skills in moving and handling from one organization/institution to another. The training
programme is broken down into modular sections to allow for flexibility in its delivery and in the appropriateness of its contents to those being trained.
PLEASE NOTE: The practical equipment (bed & hoist) are essential to this training and will need to be made available for delegate use during this course.
