Welcome to London School of Paediatrics Simulation!

Who are we?

  • We are a group of Training Programme Directors, trainees and educators who have a passion and love for simulation in clinical practice.
  • There are 3 TPDs spread throughout London for simulation:
    Dr Mehrengise Cooper (lead for simulation, NW London), Dr Rebecca Hodgkinson (South London) and Dr Trisha Radia (South London)
  • We have a network of paediatricians and allied health professionals within our faculty programme who deliver simulation in trusts all across London.

What do we do?

Our focus is to share innovative approaches to simulation across London.  We have a novel approach to faculty development and organise courses for trainees and allied health professionals.

Faculty Development Programme

  • Our faculty development programme is being realigned with national and regional programmes to support the development of all multi-professionals working in simulation training
  • All updated information will be provided on this site
  • If you are interested in learning in how you can further develop your skills as a simulation educator then please contact Mehrengise Cooper for more information and advice - mehrengise.cooper@nhs.net



Courses include

  • Level 1 full immersion one day multidisciplinary course including 5 scenarios on the acutely unwell child - please see details for the 2024 programme p
  • Part task &  communication simulation days designed to prepare level 1 trainees for their level 2 posts - please see details for the 2024 programme
  • PRACP - paediatric return to acute paediatric programme for trainees returning to clinical work after a period of time out of training
  • Training courses are being developed on Mental Health training and will be posted here when these are available



  • Here is a very useful video on Human Factors that has been put together by the LSP team and provides excellent resources around this subject.  Please have a look anytime and of course before attend the simulation training days:

Here is our Part Task guide which provides information on practical procedures for paediatrics and neonatology for 2024.

Courses for 2024:

Please see the dates below for our courses and contacts.  All centres are open to all trainees!

We are awaiting for a few more dates - some centres in London are running training for their local trainees and so we have fewer courses being run this year than in previous years.

Any questions then please contact Mehrengise Cooper for more information.
