In 2021, the RCP will open an exciting new purpose-built office in partnership with Liverpool City Council – RCP at The Spine.
For the first time in our 500-year history, the RCP will be working from two main homes, each supporting around 200 staff.
Beacon of excellence
RCP at The Spine will be a beacon of excellence, attracting high quality healthcare professionals and staff, and driving quality improvement in a pioneering atmosphere of collaboration and partnership.
This is a showcase that will open up medicine – a chance for us to show and demonstrate what we are most proud of as an organisation. We hope that RCP at The Spine will establish our presence and purpose for the next 500 years.
In a fascinating new video tour of the building, the RCP’s commissioning director for The Spine Clive Constable shows the progress being made on the construction and fitout, floor by floor. For the first time, see how the spaces for members, education, exams and assessment, meetings and events are taking shape, including the ‘Spine’ staircase from which the building gets its name.
The video finishes on the 13th floor, the highest point in Liverpool and one dedicated to meetings and events, showing its unrivalled views over the city to the Mersey and beyond, taking in the famous cathedrals. The Spine is due for completion in March 2021 when the first RCP staff will move in.
