I’m Trevor Dale, the owner and founder of Atrainability, one of the leading providers of in-house Human Factors Training for critical teams.

I created Atrainability Radio, our audio podcast series, to share valuable insights and educate staff and patients.

In this podcast series, I speak with a wide range of everyday NHS staff and patients, and my colleagues. Each one tells their unique story, hoping to spread learning far and wide. It has been an emotional roller-coaster at times yet I personally have learnt so much from our conversations, I hope you do too!
