Andrea Sutcliffe CBE was welcomed by staff and students to our Frederick Road Campus on Tuesday to discuss the future of nursing and midwifery.

Following a talk from Andrea, she was introduced to school’s Dean Professor Margaret Rowe, before being shown the industry-standard facilities throughout the Simulation Suites in the Mary Seacole building.  

When asked about her tour of the facilities, she said: “It’s been brilliant, the work I witnessed in the simulation suites was brilliant. One of the dummies went into cardiac arrest while I was there, however the students managed to save a life all while I watched.”

She added: “This is certainly the first university I’ve visited where I’ve seen facilities like these, it’s been a real eye-opener for me and I’ve enjoyed it thoroughly.”

She finished with advice for our nursing and midwifery students insisting that “people should make the most of their opportunities because there are fantastic facilities here and more importantly wonderful people who are supporting your education, so you can go out into the workplace and be exceptional.”

Andrea’s visit was concluded with an informal talk with staff and students, who got to talk with her about the profession and what the future is likely to hold for those training in nursing or midwifery.
