First Aid Training

Albacare have been providing HSE First Aid at Work since 1991 and Defibrillation Training since 2003 in the heart of the Scottish central belt - Bathgate, West Lothian.

We have trained at Hampden Park our National Football Stadium, a host of Historic Locations Across Scotland, numerous Michelin Star Restaurants and Edinburgh Castle. These are just a very small number of prestigious locations we have been fortunate to have as our training rooms!

All of our instructors are Albacare employees, ensuring we continually provide a supremely high quality training package. Our instructors are passionate not only about delivering sound and proper training, but also about providing the best standards of care for casualties on event cover. So it only made sense that we became voluntary Community First Responders in our local community of Bathgate, West Lothian. Along with Barry, a committed and highly respected Director for a global construction firm, and two members of the Scottish Ambulance Service, the five of us together set up Bathgate Community First Responders, tasked with responding to emergency 999 calls in our local area. We are continuing to recruit responders, to expanding the area we cover and the number of West Lothian communities we can reach.
