Explore our courses

The UHBW Simulation Centre (previously known as Bristol Medical Simulation Centre) is the home of University Hospitals Bristol and Weston Trust (UHBW)’s Simulation Services team.

The UHBW Simulation Centre is a unique facility delivering expert multidisciplinary healthcare training. We use a range of simulation based education methods to give all healthcare staff the opportunity to learn, rehearse and perfect patient care and teamworking, from the simple to the highly complex.

The UHBW Simulation Services team are proud to be a UHBW Education Centre service, supporting the Trust’s Education Strategy. Our work caters to all UHBW clinical and non-clinical staff, including nurses, doctors, allied health professionals, undergraduate and postgraduate students and apprentices. We are also pleased to work with a number of external partners in developing and delivering international simulation courses, and our facilities are available for hire.

The UHBW Simulation Centre is available for hire for various purposes. We are able to host groups who wish to use our facilities to run their own simulation courses, host school groups or activities, and use the venue as a backdrop for film and photo shoots.

Point of Care (POC) simulation training involves carrying out scenario-based training in the normal clinical environment, which we call the ‘patient point of care’.
