Reviews

"The book would be useful for all healthcare professionals working in an environment that involves moving patients, such as a residential care home or a hospital ward. It would also be beneficial alongside manual handling training as relevant legislation and guidance is included. This book could be used as a tool during training. All wards should have a copy." (Nursing Standard 2016)
