Former chairman Sir Ronald Mason returned to UCLH for the official opening of the Trust‚Äôs innovative learning hospital ‚Äď named in his honour.
The plaque unveilings at the Education Centre were an opportunity for colleagues and guests to celebrate its achievements so far. He was joined by Sir Liam Donaldson, former NHS chief medical officer, who performed the official opening.
Professor Aidan Halligan, Director of Education at UCLH, said the Sir Ronald Mason Learning Hospital was ‚Äúwell ahead of its time‚ÄĚ with its focus on changing behaviours through real-life simulation exercises and After Action Reviews.
He thanked chief executive Sir Robert Naylor for his ‚Äúvision, tenacity and passion‚ÄĚ which ensured the Education Centre plans had come to fruition; Professor David Fish for ‚Äúhis inspiration during difficult times‚ÄĚ; medical director Professor Tony Mundy and Rob Doel, General Manager for their invaluable support.
Professor Halligan also extended a very special thank you to the Trustees at UCLH Charity. Under the chairmanship of Sir Ronald Mason, it was they who provided the initial capital to develop the Education Centre and continuing revenue support.
