Open Day for New Emergency Services Training Centre, Merseyside

An invitation to all NHS ambulance staff
All NHS ambulance personnel are invited to the opening of a unique new indoor training facility designed for use by fire, police and ambulance services on Monday 16th September 2013. Containing a wealth of features and characteristics that are not available elsewhere (including a full size replica A&E unit, a replica hotel, replica houses and various other amazing training aids) the new Emergency Services Training Centre is based in Wallasey on the Wirral, Merseyside, just a few minutes through the tunnel from Liverpool City Centre.

About the Emergency Services Training Centre
The Emergency Services Training Centre Ltd provides a simulated emergency care environment second–to-none, to facilitate training for urgent and emergency care related learning, unique to Cheshire and Merseyside and beyond.

This resource is unreplicable and boasts indoor / outdoor, state-of-the-art facilities able to facilitate a range of scenario led training programmes for both healthcare / public service workers and students alike. Inside our unique centre you will find:

  • A full size hospital casualty dept for real-life training
  • An indoor flooding unit for water training
  • The simulated hull of a large vessel for rope rescue
  • Police “Hot House” for ballistic training
  • Two full size rail carriages for mass casualty evacuation/ derailment exercises
  • Double decker bus, single decker bus for “street scenes” and RTC re-enactment
  • 2 x fully functional fire engines
  • 2 x fully functional ambulances
  • 2 x fully operational fast response cars
  • 3 x multipurpose lecture rooms seating 50+ students
  • Large trauma and airway simulation room with car and truck in situ
  • On-site Bistro

We believe the time has come to invest in safe skill practice. This context driven training drives everyone to focus on the situation at hand and develop skills to manage the situation as a team to achieve the best clinical outcome for the patient. The training develops everyone to the same skill level to fit the environment – professional discipline, job role and banding. The centre does not dictate the level of skill or initiate it’s not my role thinking – the training enables all that participate to work together to get the best from the situation at hand. The philosophy is simple – it is everyone’s responsibility, the team are more effective together. This environment creates safe practice – where students and healthcare professionals alike no longer practice ill prepared on real people, and core standards can be embedded to train in an environment where the consultant is no different to the student.

Our Pledge
The Emergency Services Training Centre pledges to support the facilitation of safe skill practice – that combines Inter Professional Learning (IPL) and simulated learning to enhance practical skill competences for healthcare professionals and healthcare learners alike. We wish to promote an integrated workforce, where it’s everyone’s role to improve patient outcomes and safety.
