With two wonderful homes in Newcastle upon Tyne, care staff at the aptly named Hadrian Healthcare finished their Dechoker device training this week. 

The life saving equipment is now ready to help in a choking emergency, with care teams also completing their #chokeaware module as par of the process. 

Aimed at preventing a choking incident happening the first incident the expanded module looks at risk reduction, awareness and best practice.

The family run group is the 2nd prominent provider in the North East in as many months, with charity provider St Cuthbert’s Care rolling out devices to all of their services.
