The Elena Power Centre for Simulation and Human Factors
The Elena Power Centre for Simulation and Human Factors is based at Epsom Hospital, within the Post Graduate Medical Education Centre. It is a dedicated state of the art resource for both pre and post graduate interprofessional education.
The Elena Power Centre boasts a large, flexible simulation area that can be used to replicate a multitude of environments including resus, ward, theatres and community settings, and is home to several state-of-the art, high fidelity manikins which can be used to replicate a wide range of real life emergencies and hospital-based scenarios. The Elena Power Centre has a comfortable debriefing room with AV links that can accommodate up to 16 participants.

The Elena Power Centre was officially opened by Jeremy Vine in March 2015.
In 2019 the Elena Power Centre achieved accreditation by the Association of Simulation Practice in Healthcare.
In January 2020 Chris Grayling (MP) joined us to celebrate the donation of new manikins to the Elena Power Centre.
