The University of Nottingham had a long history of 'practical' rooms, but for many years there was a need for a larger multi-professional venue. The creation of the current Centre was 'driven' by Dr Tony Short and others through the 1990's.
Tony's first temporary centre was in a converted store room at the rear of the Greenfield Library.
After driving the plans through, Dr Short retired during the building of the current centre.
The new home for the main Clinical Skills Centre was the old faculty examination hall (a reflection of the associated curriculum changes).
The building process took place over the summer of the year 2000.
On completion, the Dean, Professor Rubin, appointed Dr Dick Churchill from the Division of Primary Care to lead on the further development of the Centre.
In 2017 Dr Churchill returned to full-time general practice and clinical skills leadership was handed over to the new Directors of Clinical Skills for Health Sciences and Medicine and the Clinical Skills Manager.
