«Health Education England (HEE) has joined forces with NHS England’s National Health and Justice team to develop a virtual reality (VR) app allowing nurses to experience what a role working in an adult prison would be like.»

«The VR360 app delivers an overview of what it’s like working in a prison healthcare setting, including the challenges and the benefits. The app includes a series of interviews with a mental health nurse, a healthcare officer and a GP to explain more about healthcare with prisons.»

«Patricia Howe, simulation and immersive technologies programme manager in the technology enhanced learning team at HEE, said: “Immersive learning experiences can play a significant role in helping people considering a placement setting or career change to make an informed decision to what their new role might look like.»
