About Us

About Us

We provide face-to-face training and multiplatform online training.

Our wide range of healthcare training is designed and delivered to support nurses, doctors, pharmacists, dentists, allied professionals and their teams.


ECG Training ECG was established in 2002 by Jane Lambert, a former NHS Resuscitation Officer, initially to offer resuscitation training. Since then, we have broadened our portfolio of nationwide onsite training. Our face to face courses include resuscitation, vaccination, venepuncture (phlebotomy) and 12 Lead ECG, as well as moving and handling training.

More recently, we have expanded our offer to include online courses and continue to grow the range in response to customer demand. Our online courses include chaperoning, vaccination refresher, anaphylaxis and infection prevention and control. Other subjects include, health and safety, fire safety and soft skills.

All our training courses are regularly reviewed by our Clinical Governance group to ensure the content and delivery reflects current standards, guidelines and legislation. Our large team of clinical and professional trainers offer a wide knowledge base and range of expertise that we can share with our clients.

In 2017 we launched a number of products and services to complement our training courses. We now offer a range of private vaccination PGD’s, PharmaDoctor ETool (travel health services), as well as a range of resuscitation products including defibrillators and pocket masks.

The training courses, products and service we offer mean we can facilitate all our customers’ needs, from individual learning to large NHS, Educational and Pharmaceutical organisations. For more information, contact our experienced Head Office team, who are here to give you friendly and helpful assistance in arranging and facilitating your training needs.

Jane Lambert (RGN) – CEO

Founder of ECG, responsible for the strategic leadership of the company.

I established ECG in 2002 after leaving my post at Milton Keynes Hospital as the Senior Resuscitation Officer. I enjoyed setting this service up within the hospital and developing an improved resuscitation service. ECG then enabled me to further improve resuscitation standards across Primary as well as Secondary Care. My vision was to create mandatory training which was both enjoyable and beneficial to the course attendees year after year, so it didn’t feel such a chore to attend! My future vision is to further improve the accessibility and quality of healthcare training.

“I am passionate about health and wellbeing and I’m also a qualified acupuncturist.”
