Peadiatric Immediate Life Support Course (RCUK accredited course) 
Unfortunately we don't provide this accredited course through First Aid Interventions and would advise your to contact your local hospital training team to discuss attending an Accredited Resuscitation Council (UK) Course. 
Should you require a bespoke Peadiatric or Adult Immediate Life Support style course which would cover the main structure of the Resuscitation Councils course but be adapted and bespoke to your particular area of expertise, this is something I am able to provide.  
Our team have extensive knowledge of providing high quality bespoke PILS and ILS training to several Mental Health facilities across Bedfordshire/Northamptonshire, Coventry and Essex. 
We would discuss your specific needs and tailor our training sessions to be relevent to your area of work. 
If you require further information regarding PILS and ILS and how we can adapt and tailor this to your area of work please don't hesitate to contact us directly to discuss.
