Blue Stream Academy - New Module release

17 April 2019

Blue Stream Academy (BSA) have officially released their ‘Lone Working’ module.

What is Lone Working?

A lone worker is someone who work by themselves without close or direct supervision in any environment where there are no other workers. Lone workers can be vulnerable and are at increased risk of physical or verbal abuse and harassment, accidents, theft, manual handling and incidents simply because they don’t have the immediate support of colleagues or security staff.

Where can I access this module?

If you are already a BSA user, you can gain access to this module across all BSA online training suites. You can email them if you have any access issues. If you are new to using BSA, but would like to register for one of their elearning suites, head over to their page and complete a quote form.


Surgery Link now known as CNS Media

03 April 2019

Our approved supplier of website design have changed their name. Surgery Link has always just been a brand name of CNS Media, so they have decided to retire the Surgery Link brand and keep things simple by just using their company name instead.

Other than a name change, nothing else will be affected including pricing and customer service levels. You will still get all the great features already included, such as:

- A hosted website for £200 per year
- All updates free of charge
- Mobile device friendly designs
- Friends and Family Test questionnaire
- Choice of colour scheme

If you want further information on CNS Media or would like to request a quote, head over to their page within the Suppliers section.
