Coffee, tea and other refreshments are served throughout the day, and pastries are available before the start of the course for those who have not had breakfast (or are greedy!).

A two-course lunch is served at 1:00pm, for which you will have the choice between a meat, fish or vegetarian dish. Dessert consists of a choice between cake and fruit salad.

If you have allergies, please let us know asap.

If you need to leave the course at or before 5:45pm, please let the trainer know in the morning.


Dress Code

The dress code for the course is smart casual.

Pre-Course Work

Part of the course will be dedicated to motivation questions and questions relating to personal skills. So that you draw the most benefit from the course, it would be useful if you could think about how you would answer the following questions:

  • Tell me about yourself.
  • Take us through your CV.
  • What makes you a good communicator?
  • What makes you a good team player?
  • What personal attributes do you possess which make you a good leader?
  • What are your main strengths?
  • What is your main weakness? 

It would also be useful if you could think of situations where you:

  • Your communication skills made a difference to the care of a patient
  • You played an effective role as part of a team
  • You showed initiative
  • You had to deal with a difficult patient
  • You had to deal with a difficult colleague
  • You made a clinical mistake

Prepare your answer as you would give it in the context of a real interview


Address of the venue

The course will take place at the following venue:
Grange White Hall Hotel
2-5 Montague Street
London WC1B 5BP

It is adjoining the British Museum and is therefore very central and easy to find. At the bottom of this page, you will find a map which should help you find your way round easily.

Arriving by public transport

The hotel is easily accessible from all main train stations and is near the following tube stations:
King's Cross, St Pancras, Euston, Russell Square, Goodge Street, Tottenham Court Road and Holborn.

If you are arriving through Euston or King's Cross/St Pancras, you may prefer to walk as the 15-minute walk from either station is often faster than a ride on the tube.

On site select the options London - Central London - Bloomsbury Square and choose the early bird option. Paying online will give you a code that you can use to enter and exit the car park.
