About Us



Dinwoodie Assessment and Simulation Hub (DASH) opened its doors to the first simulation course on 7th September 2016.


It is a state of the art department based at Wansbeck General Hospital that was transformed from a ward into flexible, realistic teaching environment with funding from the trust, Undergraduate Medical Education and charitable funds.


DASH aims to:


“Provide a simulated environment for teams and individuals to learn, develop

and be assessed in delivering high quality, safe, effective patient care”


mission statement


Dash is a fantastic resource that provides opportunities for multi-disciplinary education and training, it explores opportunities in which the centre can enhance staff and student learning in a simulated environment.
