Location

Situated just off the A66, our North East site is convenient to access and depart from. Along with the usual classroom and canteen areas, the site benefits from an outside area where simulated medical exercises can be performed.

Some key benefits include:

    • Sits on the main North to South network on A66 which connects East to West.
    • Close to A19 and A1(M) which are the two main roads connecting the North to the South.
    • Local airports include Newcastle (20 miles) Durham Tees-valley (3 mile)
    • Local accommodation which is a short drive from our centre.
    • Free on-site parking.

Facilities

Our state of the art centre is fully equipped to make sure students get the best possible experience out of their learning. We believe in ensuring there is a balance between classroom teaching and scenario based practice. From our spacious class rooms that are stocked with usable kit to our outdoor scenario area, our students are sure to receive the best training around.

Placements

At MediPro we believe clinical placements that offer relevant clinical practice are a vital element to our educational programmes. Bringing real life situations to the overall training package will not only benefit the student but ensures the experiences learned will benefit future patient care.

All our placements are within NHS establishments and currently include:

  • 2 major local NHS hospitals
  • NHS ambulance Services
  • Minor injury units

With many more in the pipeline including GP surgeries and further urgent care centres.

All student will require an enhanced DBS (disclosure and baring service) check or have one that is not more than 6 months old (Medipro apply for this on your behalf). A health screening questionnaire will be completed as well as a local induction. All our students are fully insured whilst on placement and full support offered.

MediPro are also able to assist clinicians who want placements for specific reasons that are not part of our educational programmes, these may include:

  • Improve clinical practice/experience
  • Improve skill fade
  • Support existing educational programmes
  • Help to enter a professional register
  • Support any fitness to practice issues

Students get the opportunity to observe on one of our rapid response paramedic cars during their course. The student will work with the paramedic responding to 999 calls to enhance their training and education by supporting real-life incidents. This is an experience you can't find anywhere else
