Explore our courses

The UHBW 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.

Through the work of UHBW Simulation Services, UHBW is now an ASPiH accredited organisation, which recognises the set of standards and values that we uphold in all our simulation based education.

What we do


The Outreach Simulation Programme focuses on using simulation to educate 8-18 year olds within our local community and encourages them to consider a career in the NHS.

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’.
