Tim has directed many PTCF courses, so he knows how effective they are:

“The success of this pioneering programme is evidenced by its enormous global use, where it saves lives every day and enhances clinical practise, which directly benefits patients in the critical stages following a trauma event. But to me it is more than that. There are the other positives such as the way it brings people together, from all disciplines, both in their own facility but also from further afield, enabling relationships and teams to be built up and developed, it truly is a formidable, well thought out programme”
