After his appointment as Consultant in PICU at Bristol Children’s hospital in 2004, he began using simulation as an educational tool. Simulation became his passion, which led to his appointment as Director of the Bristol Paediatric Simulation Programme in 2007 and Chair of Bristol Medical Simulation Centre in 2009. 

He currently serves as the Chair of the University of Bristol Simulation Board and leads the UoB Medical School Simulation and the West of England School of Health and Social Care Interprofessional Education Programme. 

He is a past President of the International Paediatric Simulation Society and SESAM. 

He is actively involved in simulation education at local, regional, national and international level. Internationally he has collaborated with healthcare professionals in a variety of healthcare settings to establish sustainable simulation infrastructure to enhance patient safety and quality of health care delivery through the integration of multi-disciplinary simulation-based education through application in four strategic pillars: Education, Quality Improvement, Clinical Governance and Research.
