Construction of the £8.5 million Academic Centre began last winter is and on schedule to be operational by January 2018. The state-of-the-art building is the result of a partnership between the hospital and the University of Buckingham Medical School and will be opened by HRH The Duke of Kent at an official ceremony in February 2018.
The new Academic Centre will provide an outstanding resource for medical education and training for students, doctors, nurses and health professionals throughout the hospital. Facilities in the pioneering building include a simulated operating theatre and a video link showing live procedures taking place in the hospital’s operating theatres, working replicas of clinical wards, and a 200-seat lecture with capacity to stream lectures throughout the building.
