USW helping the NHS in the fight against Covid-19

Since the outbreak of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) emerged in the UK, the University of South Wales’s Clinical Simulation Centre has played a key role in the effort to fight the pandemic.

The Centre helped to prepare nurses from USW’s local health board partner organisations to care for individuals who are seriously ill. The training sessions were held at the request of Health Education Improvement Wales (HEIW), who support NHS Wales with training, education and workforce development needs.

In short:

Matthew Thornton, Head of Practice-based Learning at USW, said: “Given the nature of coronavirus and the numbers of people affected, it is likely that we will see relatively high numbers of people requiring specialist care. The Simulation Centre and its staff are a unique asset, and we’re proud to be able to help support our NHS during this extremely difficult time.”
