Taking simulation to town!

As part of our first birthday celebrations, and to showcase our campaign to develop world-class simulation, we were in Britomart’s Takutai Square – accompanied by Auckland City Hospital’s very own SimMan!

The life-like manikin wowed the crowds and, thanks to the DHB’s Simulation team, there were demos throughout the day and people were able to test their own life-saving CPR skills. 

The teams gave people a glimpse of the amazing work that happens in our hospitals every day, and explained how everyone can get involved to make it even better.

We have so far received donations and pledges totalling $331,000 towards the simulation project, which is set to roll out over the coming three years.  We are working with supporters to fund the people, equipment and space for simulation training, which will make it truly world-class and benefit countless DHB staff and patients.
