Project story

Designed in collaboration with industry experts and funded through the Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Local Enterprise Partnership (SSLEP) Getting Building Fund, this exciting new 1242sqm facility will include a state-of-the-art Clinical Simulation Centre.

The facility aims to meet modern demands and challenges in the sector, meaning that students, healthcare professionals and start-up businesses, will have the chance to immerse themselves in the latest medical techniques and methods.

Using advanced VR and AR technology, the Centre for Health Innovation will facilitate opportunities to explore and develop new patient safety techniques through cutting edge digital simulation and immersion suites.

This ground-breaking approach will enhance the digital capability of the emerging healthcare workforce helping to position the UK at the forefront of patient safety and positioning Staffordshire at the heart of driving the Digital Health agenda forwards. The centre will help support over 500 skilled nurses, midwives and allied health professionals supplementing the NHS workforce per annum.

The facility is part of £23.7 million government investment which was made available to 11 ‘shovel ready’ projects across Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire. These projects will support the LEP area’s recovery from COVID-19 under the LIS strategy and its implementation and renewal plan.
