"Katie was very knowledgeable and reassuring re our forthcoming CQC visits. I for one, feel much more prepared for CQC having sat through the presentation and having listened to the discussion which took place. Katie was an excellent trainer and I think that the whole group really enjoyed how it was presented. A very worthwhile training experience which will hopefully be put to good use!"
