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, video demonstrations can be made available using the wide screen HD monitors and Sony camera system.
Key features of this facility are its flexibility and space, as it can be used for a wide range of surgical and imaging courses. Delegates are able to interact with course colleagues and the speaker to gain maximum benefit from the practical training.

Continue down the hill and at the traffic lights turn left into Smithy Wood Business Park. At the roundabout take the second exit and continue down the road.
