The refurbishment of the old staff cafeteria, on Level 1 of Westmead Hospital, has now commenced.

This area will become an important component of the Westmead Education Conference Centre (WECC).

The WECC expansion to level 1 is an exciting new development and the first major upgrade of shared education, training and research spaces for Westmead Hospital.

This new development will be a high-quality, contemporary, flexible and technology-enabled teaching and learning space. It will support Westmead's diverse students, researchers and clinicians and their collaborations and be a space open to all staff and students on the precinct.

The new spaces will be IT enabled to support contemporary teaching and learning practices. The spaces will also support small events. The new spaces will test new environments and practices for education, training and research to feed into the design of the nw acute services building.

A new staff cafeteria is also being built in WECC level 1. This new amenity will provide staff with a discreet and comfortable meeting place for their breaks. The new staff cafeteria space and WECC level 1 space is expected to open in late July.

To enable the refurbishment of this area, the staff cafeteria will is closed from Friday 24th February, however, the Special Function Room will be available until Wednesday 1st March.

From Thursday 2nd March a range of alternative areas will be available to accommodate staff who have used this space for their breaks.
