North Staffordshire Medical Institute

Operating within the North Staffordshire Medical Institute Charity building, the Centre has a wide range of rooms and spaces available for you to hire including five seminar rooms, two two-tiered lecture theatres and an impressive upstairs landing area.
The building itself opened in 1965, as the first purpose-built post-war postgraduate centre for medical and dental education and research in Britain, and the North Staffordshire Medical Institute set a pattern for other districts all over the UK. The Institute Charity funds potentially lifesaving local medical research into projects such as heart research, treatment following a stroke, ovarian cancer, prostatic cancer and mental illness, amongst many others.

Non-profit-making organisation

As a non-profit-making organisation, the Wade Conference Centre ensures the upkeep of the The North Staffordshire Medical Institute Charity reg. No. 200843 through surplus monies from room hire, enabling the Institute to continue funding vital medical research.
That means that when you hire a room at the Wade Conference Centre, you’re helping to fund potentially life-saving medical research. Find out more about some of the Institute funded projects, by visiting the North Staffordshire Medical Institute Blog.
