Simulation is being increasingly used in postgraduate medical education as a means to allow learning in a non-threatening and safe environment.

Health Education England working across the east of England's simulation strategy has been built by a steering group  around a fully evaluated, coordinated, multi-professional approach targeted at improving patient safety and experience.

A hub and spoke model has been adopted, with the hubs being based in the region’s Medical Schools and Higher Education Institutions (HEI’s) and the spokes in Trusts.

Each specialty school has an identified simulation lead (indicative roles and responsibilities and contact details) and similarly with Trusts (indicative roles and responsibilities and contact details)

The main points of contact for simulation activity in each HEI/Medical School can be found here.
