Introducing the new BMAS Training Centre


History
The BMAS has always had a presence in Cheshire, ever since the first administrator ran the Society office from her garage in Warrington. In 2003 a property was purchased at 3 Winnington Court, Northwich and named BMAS House.  

The administrative functions of BMAS have been run from this office ever since and there are currently 4 members of staff working there.


Northwich lies at the junction of the rivers Dane and Weaver and is currently undergoing an £80 million redevelopment. It is ideally situated for the M6 and M56, Manchester and Liverpool (including the airports) and has excellent rail links from Manchester and London.  

In 2013 BMAS purchased the offices next door and the two buildings were joined to provide a large training space, meeting/breakout rooms, dining room and kitchen. Disabled access was improved and the building now has wheelchair access. There is also plenty of car parking available at the rear of the building.

In May 2014 the first BMAS course was held there with the building being completed and officially opened by the town Mayor in September 2014.

Training facility
The BMAS courses previously run in the North of England are now run at this new venue and at a much lower cost to the Society than previous Northern courses. Students rate the location and facilities very highly and this development of the building has allowed the Northwich staff to become much more involved with members of the Society when they attend courses. BMAS Council meetings are now also held at the new facility twice a year.

New Teaching clinic

 The ground floor is being developed as a new teaching clinic.  This will provide the Society with two consulting rooms and a multi purpose 4 bed examination/treatment room.  Newly trained members are invited to apply to work there as trainees under the supervision of an experienced acupuncturist.  So if you're looking to gain confidence and experience, whilst collecting cases for your CoBC or Diploma, this is a great opportunity.  Details are still to be finalised but if you are interested in getting involved at the new clinic please contact the London office in the first instance Tel: 0207 713 9437 or email london@thebmas.com
