Learn more about our unique Living Lab and its advanced sector simulation equipment.
Our Living Lab reflects various contemporary care provision settings and is made up of several specialist laboratories, from mock hospital wards, pharmacy dispensaries and a dementia-friendly patient flat, to a hi-fidelity immersive simulation suite.
The immersive simulation suite allows you to experience a range of health, medical and care events in simulated environments. An adjacent task trainer room can aid with the development of clinical and non-technical skills. Integral cameras enable participants to view live or recorded footage in the dedicated debrief room. The Lab also has an OSCE suite and seminar rooms.
The facility has a range of simulation mannequins, including SimMan 3G, SimNewB, SimMom, ALS and TraumaFX simbody. A range of other clinical equipment and a pop-up training ambulance are available to complement the facilities.
The bespoke training ambulance contains the latest high-fidelity simulation infrastructure. This includes the ability to remotely film, record and observe simulated scenarios in class or remotely on personal devices, while working alongside experienced paramedic senior lecturers. The ambulance has been designed to enable you to experience the day-to-day work of an ambulance paramedic.
