We emphasise learning from experience, medical evidence, research and reflection, whilst as a learning organisation we ensure responsiveness to clinical incidents. 

Support is available for LTFT trainees, trainees with additional needs and changes to personal circumstances.

Supported return to training

We are engaged in research, locally and nationally, clinical audit and innovative service improvements.  We employ Clinical Trust Fellows in Simulation and Education. 

The medical rotas comprise a mixture of self-rostering for senior doctors, with fully compliant rotas for junior doctors, all responsive to personal requirements.

 

In the Emergency Department we hold a two day ED Induction, weekly junior medical training sessions, monthly full day training days for higher trainees and SAS doctors, weekly Paediatric Emergency Medicine training and Physician Associate training, as well as ad hoc SIM sessions and examination revision/OSCE sessions.  We have whole day ED Governance Days once per academic term and regular M&M sessions.  We support RCEM Regional Training, ALS, EPLS and TTLS courses.

 

Four daily handover ‘board rounds’ ensure safe and effective supervision and handover of patients between shifts.   Direct consultant supervision is provided 15 hours per day weekdays and at least 13 hours at weekends.

"As a trainee in Emergency Medicine you will be welcomed into a supportive team, which has your personal development and training at its centre."
