Wheelchair Passenger Training

Wheelchair Passenger Training

WTS prides itself on its comfort, safety and convenience for its wheelchair passengers.

In addition to all drivers undergoing training on the safety and security of passengers, drivers and escorts who transport passengers with specific disabilities are trained on potential emergency procedures which can potentially occur.

During April, Two drivers and an escort received in-house training, in conjunction with East Sussex County Council, on three topics:

Tracheostomy – Practical demonstration of oral suctioning competence (to enhance learning from previous tracheostomy training).

Gastrostomy – Theory in enteral feeding tubes and simulated competence on managing a dislodged gastrostomy.

Epilepsy – Awareness and seizure first aid. Competence in adminstration of buccal Midazolam.

Continued training in medical emergencies ensures our team are ready to cope with any eventuality during transportation.
