Simulation Suite and Extended Reality Lab

The UHNM simulation team help to deliver high quality clinical simulation within the hospital's Extended Reality Lab (ERL), based at the Post Graduate Medical Centre, County Hospital.

The simulation suite has been designed to be a flexible immersive learning environment to suit the user’s requirements. Together with our viewing gallery it’s the perfect safe learning environment for any simulation training.

Simulation training allows for improved quality in patient care and patient safety. Sessions can cover a range of non-technical skills such as clinical reasoning and decision making, team working and communication along with technical skills such as clinical examination and invasive procedures.
