The Rotherham Simulation Suite is used to recreate a wide range of clinical events and provide expert simulation training for professionals and students. In our training sessions, we recreate the general ward, A&E, paediatric, theatre, anaesthetic, and the community environment using our medium fidelity computerised manikins, which perform many realistic human functions. Additionally, our in situation simulation programmes take place in clinical areas such as theatres, A&E, outpatients, medical wards, and critical care. Read more about the Simulation Suite.
