Dr Jane Roome

I am a GP in Sussex, GP Tutor for West Kent, Deputy Chair of West Kent Training Hub and the Faculty Education Lead for the RCGP SE Thames region. I am passionate about the benefit of simulation training for all Primary Care staff, including non clinical colleagues. I am incredibly proud of the faculty and how we have developed over the last few years and excited for our ongoing work and planned pilots.

Caroline Greenfield

I work as a Practice Nurse Manager in Mid Sussex. I have special interests in women’s health, dementia and cancer care and do additional work as a Clinical Nurse Specialist for Macmillan based in our trust.
I became involved in the faculty after attending a Emergency Simulation day which was so amazing and completely taken some anxiety away from emergency situations in general Practice.
I have a husband, dog and 2 daughters one a nurse and the other a student nurse who share my passion for patient care.

I am Practice Development Facilitator with the Sussex Training Hub based In West Sussex . My first experience with simulation was in secondary care where I facilitated simulation training for newly qualified multi-professionals. I joined the training Hub and was given the opportunity to be involved with the KSS Simulation Faculty . This has provided me with the opportunity to have a better understanding of Primary care develop, adapt my skills and sharing knowledge with a multi-professional team to deliver Simulation training across KSS.
