November monthly focus: Transfer of Heartbeat Education Centre to the Trust

In July the Trust and Wessex Heartbeat reached an agreement to transfer the Heartbeat Education Centre (HEC), F level, North Wing to the Trust, with it to be managed by training and development. As previous users will know, the Heartbeat Education Centre rooms are well equipped and offer very flexible teaching accommodation.

Whilst this transfer included the giving up of two teaching rooms in SAB, overall there has been no loss of teaching space available within the Trust. We look after thirty teaching rooms across the Trust including those in the HEC, SAB Education Centre, clinical skills including the simulation suite, learning support and Trust Management Offices. 

The Heartbeat Education centre rooms have been added to the Trust’s education room booking system and are available to those who book teaching rooms through this system. Other enquires can be made by emailing or by phoning ext. 4098.

All bookings for Heartbeat Education Centre rooms made before the transfer to the Trust will be honoured with the added advantage that most Trust users no longer need to pay to use these rooms. Details about booking and using the rooms can be found on the education pages on staffnet (these pages can only be accessed from a Trust computer).

We hope to add to the video conferencing already available in HEC to increase the flexibility of use of some of the rooms when links to other Trusts and external organisations are needed.

Some training and development staff have also moved from SAB to the offices in the Heartbeat Education Centre but have kept their previous telephone extensions.
