Cytology Training Courses

East Pennine Cytology Training Centre

With a catchment area stretching the length and breadth of the eastern side of the Pennine Way, the East Pennine Cytology Training Centre is the creation emerging from a successful unification of the former Sheffield Cytology Training Centre and the Northern & Yorkshire Cytology Training School.

Supported by service level agreements with Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, the NHS Foundation Trust, Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and overseen by a Management Board, the training centre aims to become the backbone of cytology training, creating and maintaining a centre of excellence.

NHS Cervical Screening Programme Workforce

The principal role of the East Pennine Cytology Training Centre (EPCTC) is to ensure the development of the NHS Cervical Screening Programme workforce, through the promotion of a range of high quality training initiatives and courses.

Modern Facilities and Accessible Location

Our purpose built training facility is geographically ideal, being little more than an hour by road from Manchester International Airport and less than an hour from Leeds Bradford Airport.

The state of the art premises are located on the Capitol Park West Business Park in Leeds, which is located very close to the M62/M1 motorway interchange.
