A BRAND new simulation centre at the University of Portsmouth will be open to the public.

The university has launched the centre and members of the public will have the chance to come and see the facilities for the first time.

It will be open tomorrow as part of National Science and Engineering Week.

Formerly known as the Expert centre, it houses simulation technology designed to be true to life, so that students can learn healthcare techniques before working with real patients.

Radiographers, operating department practitioners, and paramedics, among other disciplines, are able to train there as part of their course.

The School of Health Sciences and Social Work, which owns the facility, are offering it as a resource to the community.

Visitors will be offered a tour of the facilities.

The centre will be open from 5pm until 7pm in the James Watson West building.

The tour is suitable for any ages but must be booked in advance.

Please email events@port.ac.uk to book a place and to find out more.
