First Aid, Care & Rehabilitation of Hedgehogs Course

The course is run in partnership with Vale Wildlife Hospital and is being held at The Vale Wildlife Hospital near Tewkesbury (GL20 7AN)

It runs from 9am until around 4.30-5pm and must be booked and paid for through the BHPS by phone.

The course costs £70 per person, but if you have been on the BHPS rehabilitator directory for a year or more, we will subsidise the cost by 50%, meaning we will pay £35 towards your space and it will cost you just £35.

You will need to bring your own lunch, but hot drinks will be available.

We have 12 spaces available for the next course date on Friday 27th September 2024 – please call us on 01584 890 801 to book your space.
