The Centre

The ground floor of the Centre provides an excellent range of conference and seminar facilities. There are eight seminar/tutorial rooms, two tiered lecture theatres and a  hall capable of seating 250 people. All rooms are well equipped with audio-visual facilities, including satellite and overhead projection in the larger lecture theatre.

The foyer provides an attractive setting and is an excellent reception point prior to the start of a meeting and is an ideal place for larger groups to register. It is also ideal for displaying exhibition stands or for refreshment breaks during meetings.

Please contact Bebba Smithers, Medical Education Manager, to discuss any of your strategic requirements.
