Ruth Thomson


Ruth was a first level registered nurse who qualified in 1991. During her career, she worked in a variety of acute settings enjoying work in the emergency department of a very busy hospital most of all. She became involved in first aid while still working as a nurse, recognising the challenges faced by those outside a hospital environment and the desire to provide top quality care to those she was caring for.

As a first aider, Ruth was a Clydesider during the Commonwealth Games in 2014. She is also the first aider and instructor for Scottish Fencing Ltd, the national governing body of this sport.

Ruth, who provides a wide range of first aid training courses for IED, has experience of training in a variety of settings and enjoys the challenge of ensuring training is tailored to the needs of her clients. She prides herself in providing top quality training experiences.
