At the west end of the East and Vest corridor, there is a Chapel, which has been used as an overflow or emergency ward, and also for class and demonstration purposes. It has been needed badly since the only other teaching room is a very small amphitheatre between the Gifford Vard and the Chapel. At the east end of the corridor is an operating suite (I888).
