A completely refurbished training centre has been officially opened at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn.

The Inspire centre will provide a modern venue for the trust's training courses along with the Lifelong Learning Programme, and become a regional union hub, with Unison's new member centre and regional office within the building.

The former sports and social club was transformed over a 12-week building project, which cost £265,000.

Unison general secretary Dave Prentis joined hospital chief executive Dorothy Hosein at the opening today.

Darren Barber, Unison secretary and convener for the eastern region, said: 'It means we can now offer a personal service to the fragmented staff within the NHS, local government and emergency services.'
