Simulation Lab

The Simulation Centre boasts the same of the art facilities to enable a full range of simulation education to all health and social care professionals. The centre contains a range of high fidelity patient simulators that accurately replicate physiological parameters allowing interventions to be performed with realistic outcomes in virtual clinical environments.

The centre is able to replicate theatre, critical care, A&E, midwifery, ward-based and community environments, supporting the educational needs of staff from a range of disciplines and across all health and social care areas.

Pre-registration Health and Social Care

All pre-registration students experience simulation as part of their curriculum. By integrating simulation with a diverse range of online learning activities and tutorials, students can more effectively link theory to practice. Using video playback and skilled de-briefing, students are able to reflect on performance and repeat as necessary to ensure that all group members are fully prepared for practice.

Post-registration Health and Social Care

Revision of essential skills and development of advanced practice within the Simulation Centre enables practitioners to demonstrate ongoing ‘fitness to practice’ and a commitment to life-long learning.
