Alexandra House Swindon

Our training centre and headquarters at Alexandra House in Swindon, enables us to provide our delegates with exceptional facilities, including comfortable training rooms for theoretical taught lectures, together with a purpose built “wet-lab” facility.

Delegates are able to work in pairs across seven surgical stations with bright operating theatre standard lighting, comfortable seating and a wide choice of surgical equipment.

Where appropriate to the course, video demonstrations can be made available using the wide screen HD monitors and Sony camera system to ensure that attendees do not miss anything important.

One of the key features of this facility is its flexibility and space, as it can be used for a wide range of surgical and imaging courses. It also allows delegates to interact with other attendees and the speaker, so that they gain maximum benefit from the practical training.
