Public invited to hear about North-east’s new flagship healthcare training centre

The public is invited to join University of Aberdeen graduates and former members of staff for a social event and opportunity to hear more about an ambitious medical teaching and training centre planned for Foresterhill.

The Matthew Hay project is the focus is of the annual Graduate Lunch and General Council meeting which takes place on Saturday June 23 in the King's College Centre on the University's Old Aberdeen campus.

Professor Sir Graeme Catto, who is President of the General Medical Council and an Aberdeen medical graduate, will give an update on the progress of the £16.5 million project which is a partnership involving the University and NHS Grampian.

Impressions of how the new building will look and an update on the highly successful fundraising campaign will also be given by Sir Graeme, who is Chairman of the Matthew Hay fundraising appeal.

The state-of-the-art building, which begins construction at Foresterhill later this summer, will use the latest technology and teaching methods to provide medical education and training in clinical skills for medical students and qualified health professionals at all stages of their careers.

The combination of location, facilities and equipment, quality of teaching, and support from the community and business sector, gives the new centre the potential to be the finest of its kind in the UK.

A 3D model of the new building will be available for guests to view in the King's College Centre from 10.30am over tea and coffee, prior to the presentation which begins at 11am.

Sir Graeme's presentation will be followed by a Graduate Lunch in Zeste, Old Aberdeen, from 12noon. Booking for the presentation and/or the lunch can be made online at www.abdn.ac.uk/alumni  or by contacting Fiona Bain on 01224 273277.
