New building

New build gifWe are pleased to say that construction work has begun on our new state of the art training centre.

Our progressive, new 3000m² training centre will provide as realistic a healthcare learning environment as possible; the building will replicate the majority of technical support service disciplines found within hospital and other medical environments.

Features and benefits

Our significant 500m² dedicated decontamination centre, replicating hospital SSD facilities, will feature an extensive range of decontamination equipment including endoscopy decontamination; enabling training on the full instrument tracking and decontamination processes including laser barcodes, fully operational RO water and steam plant supplying the washers and sterilizers.

The plant room features the only ‘live’ MGPS in the UK for practical training, alongside a dedicated medical gas classroom with practical facilities and an external VIE.

The unit features a dedicated practical training area and the widest range of medical equipment for maintenance training including anaesthetic and ventilation, cardiovascular, vital signs and foetal monitoring, physiotherapy and surgical equipment.

The only 3-storey lift training facility in the UK dedicated to the specific needs of the healthcare sector with fully working traction, machine roomless and hydraulic lifts.

Fully operational hospital heating, ventilation and air conditioning supplying the operating theatre and extra training areas, including exposed ductwork in the air handling and plant room.

Practical water safety audits and testing will take place on the new water systems.

Simulated fire risk assessments will be possible throughout the training centre.

The operating theatre electrical installation with isolated power supplies, UPS provision, earthing and theatre lighting offers hands-on experience for the inspection, fault finding, maintenance and testing in various practical scenarios for delegates to work through.

Training on all aspects of estates will be viable using the replica hospital training centre as a working environment.

Opportunities for manufacturers and suppliers

The new centre will not only create a fantastic learning environment for those training with us in the future, but it also presents a unique environment to demonstrate and present your business to the healthcare sector. If you are a manufacturer or supplier to the healthcare sector, our training centre will offer some unique opportunities including:

  • potential as a regional show room
  • research or test facility
  • potential for staff training and collaborative events
  • venue for hosting seminars, sales meetings etc.
  • a medical environment to demonstrate and trial new products

If you wish to discuss such opportunities then please contact Training Manager, Lyndsay Corbett.


Environmentally friendly

The building is designed from the ground up to be as environmentally friendly as possible by the 'green' technology and carbon renewables.

The building has been designed in a discrete location primarily to preserve the 220 acre estate’s historic landscape, and also to reduce the impact on the varied estate wildlife including deer, badgers, bats and great crested newts.
