Welcome to the Simulation and Interactive Learning (SaIL) Centres.

The SaIL centres are state-of-the-art training centres dedicated to delivering clinical skills and high fidelity training for both undergraduate and postgraduates.

Simulation at King’s Health Partners originated on the Guy’s Hospital campus in 2008, the King’s College Hospital campus in 2009 and expanded into a £1.75 million centre on the St Thomas Hospital campus in 2010. In that time they have become one of the most active facilities in London training over 4000 healthcare students and professionals each year. The centre’s focus on medical error and human factors/non-technical skills to improve patient safety. King’s Health Partners links King’s College London’s expertise in clinical and communication skills training and education, with the human patient simulation skills of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, and South London and the Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.

Our core values are:

  • Patient safety
  • Inter-professional education (IPE)
  • Human factors/Non-technical skills training

The particular strengths of simulation at King’s Health Partners are:

  • Developing an inter-professional faculty involving all levels of seniority;
  • Developing Debrief models;
  • Faculty development;
  • Using simulation as part of a blended learning experience;
  • Developing innovative educational materials to teach Patient Safety.

Dr Peter Jaye has been the King’s Health Partners Simulation lead since 2009. His role involves developing and co-ordinating simulation services across the organisation.

As a cross-cutting theme, Simulation is a core area of focus within the King’s Health Partners Education Academy.
