Life is delighted to be the venue for an NHS large vaccination centre, but the operation of the centre, including appointments and queueing, is solely the responsibility of the NHS. Sorry, but Life will not respond to any queries relating to the NHS vaccination programme.

The NHS has issued the following information: Only people who are invited to have a vaccine can book an appointment. For more information go to this NHS website.

Parking is available in nearby Times Square Car Park. Limited spaces are available on site on a first-come, first-served basis – sorry, but we are unable to reserve spaces. 

 

Due to Government restrictions, Life Science Centre, Life Meetings and Events and Times Square Café are currently closed. For any queries, please email info@life.org.uk. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Stay safe.

Due to the Government-imposed lockdown, Life Science Centre is currently closed.
