Case Studies

I would like to thank you for lecturing on the MRCPsych Part 1 Course. The day was a success with very positive comments regarding both content and presentation.

Catherine Ayres, Programme Manager, Royal College of Psychiatrists

We have had the pleasure of working with Professional Role Players as a company for some years now and I personally have always found this to be a positive experience. I would be happy to recommend PRP to anyone without reservation.

David Hackett, Clinical Teacher, Derbyshire NHS Foundation Trust

PRP have reliably provided us with well-briefed and capable simulated patients for teaching and assessment of undergraduate medical students. The PRP office team are quick to respond to queries, take time to listen to requirements and are proactive in seeking clarification of any areas of uncertainty.

Sarah Bradley, Senior Clinical Skills Tutor, University of Exeter Medical School

It is always a great pleasure working with PRP – the planning and admin is always friendly and efficient, and the role players a delight to work with. Our students consistently rate their session with PRP role players as the highest on the course, and that is in large part down to the professionalism and approachability of the actors.

Dr Graham Easton, International Tutor & Lead for Health & Society, King’s College London

We have used PRP for the last year to support our work in training staff to manage challenging interactions with the public. Without fail, the actors have been reliable, committed, flexible and extremely talented. Delegates regularly comment on how 'real' the scenarios appear and how helpful the role-plays are in developing their own skills. We can't recommend PRP highly enough - many thanks for enhancing our training.

Professor Jo Clarke, Founder & Director, Petros

We have been booking actors and professional patients via Professional Role Players for many years. The service provided has always been excellent and we have never had any issues.

Daniel Kightley, Training Coordinator, Centre for Health & Disability Assessments

Role players were great as usual for the Year 4 MBChB psychiatry rotation and Year 5 final year clinical exams!

Dominic Riordan, Undergraduate Medical Education, University of Birmingham

PRP have a pool of talented professional role players who form a key part of our clinical training. The actors are quick to understand the scenarios and are totally convincing in their roles. This provides realistic experience in a safe environment from which trainees can learn. PRP are responsive and able to adapt effectively when changes occur. PRP provide an invaluable service and are a pleasure to work with.

Karen Larwood, UK Clinical Training & Development Manager, Atos

The customer service provided by the PRP team is excellent. As a medical educator, I am very fortunate to have PRP as a resource to call upon.

Dr Geoff Lawrence-Smith, Joint Director of Medical Education, Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust

The sessions were a great success and the Actors you supplied were absolutely brilliant I couldn’t recommend them highly enough!
