The purchase of a new mannequin, named Carson, is enabling the hospital’s simulation centre to upgrade and enhance its simulation based education, as well as extend its reach to all wards and services across the hospital.

Gareth Evans, Simulation Educator and Facilitator said: “The new mannequin has allowed us to diversify and enhance the training that we are able to offer to all clinical staff. It replicates accurately emergency situations and acute ptient scenarios, providing an invaluable training experience. It also helps to foster working as a multi-discilinary team. We are excited to have this new high-fidelity patient simulator, thanks to the support of Kingston Hospital Charity.”
