EPCTC is moving!!

Please be aware that East Pennine Cytology Training Centre is moving and has completed a formal merger with North West CTC and will therefore adopt a new corporate identity.  

As of 1st April 2016, EPCTC will become North of England Pathology and Screening Education Centre.  

The new address is Unit 3 Wakefield Office Village, Fryers Way, Silkwood Park, Wakefield, WF5 9TJ and the facilities will be available for training from early May 2016.  
Therefore there will be a period of time between 23rd October 2015 and approximately early March 2016 where the team will be operating remotely in order to maintain as much business continuity as is possible.  

The staff continue to work from temporary office space until May 2016, so please bear with us during these difficult weeks ahead.  However, rest assured that the staff will always be doing everything they can to assist you with your training requirements, queries or concerns.

The address and telephone numbers remain the same at this time.
