Visiting RCP at The Spine

Our new building, The Spine, is a showcase for the work we do, for the opportunities we create, and the welcome we offer. 

The new northern site is positioned in the heart of Liverpool's medical and scientific precinct. It is considered a major gateway building within the Paddington Village development, which is being led by Liverpool City Council.
