The beginning of the beach season has seen the start of an exciting water safety injury prevention project. Our clinical team have been involved in training sessions with new and current RNLI beach lifeguards, familiarising each other with our ways of working. These sessions have been met with great enthusiasm and many suggestions have been made on how both teams can work together, particularly during the busy summer months.

Both parties are continuing to support public signage and target safety messaging to water users, in a bid to prevent beach and water users becoming patients in the first place.

Alongside our RNLI colleagues, we are really looking forward to being able to deliver face-to-face water safety and injury prevention messages to the public in due course.
