Meet the Clinical Simulation team

Lead for Simulation

 Dr Richard Paget

MBChB FRCPCH

 

Richard joined Great Ormond Street as a Consultant in Cardiac Intensive Care in 2008 and also became a Children’s Acute Transport Service Consultant in 2009. He oversaw the creation of the first Clinical Simulation Centre (CSC) using a pair of Cardiac Transplant cubicles long since converted to store rooms. He also designed the current CSC, which opened in 2013.

Interim Operational Lead for Simulation

Emma Broughton

​BN (Child), Anaesthetic Nurse

 

​Emma is a paediatric nurse who trained in Aberdeen and began her nursing career at Royal Aberdeen Children's Hospital. Joining GOSH in 2014, Emma continued her career within her speciality of anaesthetics and recovery where she developed an affinity for clinical education. Emma is passionate about improving communication and teamwork in a clinical setting by improving inter-professional relationships. She aims to use simulation to enhance these working relationships and develop the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours essential to the delivery of safe and effective patient care.

Simulation Educator, Clinical Simulation

Eddie Adair

BSc

 

Eddie is a children's nurse and studied in Queens University in Belfast and has been working at GOSH since 2012. Eddie's clinical speciality is haematology and oncology. While working on these wards, he found himself teaching clinical skills to students and finding a passion for it. Since then Eddie has joined the Education team as a student practice facilitator and now facilitates simulation learning for the trust with a special interest in undergraduate simulation. The purpose of this programme is to help develop the emotional resilience and skills of our nursing workforce, by early introduction to managing common emergency situations within paediatrics, using simulation to provide a safe environment to work together.

Clinical Simulation Technician

Michaella Wiltshire

 

Michaella started her NHS career in 2013 on an apprenticeship in Clinical Technology. During her training, she worked in a number of different areas including A&E, Operating Theatres and Medical Engineering and Physics. Since then, she has helped to develop the technical services of a number of departments, and has implemented award-winning improvements. She has specialised in mainly technical services, but also enjoys learning about clinical scenarios and how these work together. She has now taken an interest in simulation and how her work can contribute to patient safety and staff development.

Clinical Simulation Technician

Eli Gumble

BEng (Hons)

 

Eli obtained a degree in Systems Engineering in 2016, having studied and undertaken projects on the engineering-based simulation disciplines such as the modelling of mechanical and physical systems. Clinical simulation as a field makes heavy use of technology and Eli’s expertise lies in finding the best ways to use the technology available to create the most realistic simulations. His extracurricular backgrounds in live music and radio provided good preparation for the unpredictable nature of many scenarios run in the Centre.
