The Clinical Simulation Space

Simulation training is widely used at North Bristol NHS Trust as a way to train and develop our staff, improving clinical practice, patient safety, and developing understanding of human factors.

We are very proud of the programmes we run, whether simulating acutely unwell medical scenarios for junior doctors, rehearsing surgical procedures with our theatre teams, or the complex care of patients on our wards, training all staff, both medical and non-medical together.

We undertake training in our purpose built simulation space and in-situ in ward and theatre environments, and have an expert faculty able to develop and support simulation training in any of its forms.
