TEWV has once again been rated number one in the North East and has moved up a place to fifth nationally following a survey conducted by the General Medical Council (GMC). The Trust received the rating after junior doctors provided feedback on their experiences at TEWV as part of the GMC National Training Survey.
The Trust equally excelled in the GMC trainer survey which placed TEWV as the fourth best NHS Trust in the UK and the highest ranking organisation for trainer development.
The surveys provide a valuable insight into the training programmes for junior doctors across the UK and consider how well the trainers are supported. The results are used to identify areas of good practice which can be shared to improve best practice and training, as well as areas for concern that may need to be improved on.
Commenting on the results Bryan O’Leary, associate director of medical development, said “We are really pleased to be ranked number one in the North East for the sixth year in a row and to have received such positive feedback from our trainers.
“The feedback is one of a number of indicators that we use to understand how we deliver quality placements and the results are testament to the dedication and hard work of our medical development team, clinical and educational supervisors and the wider faculty of tutors.
“As a Trust we aim to recruit, develop and retain a skilled, compassionate and motivated workforce that can provide excellent service and care to our service users. We hope that by achieving such impressive results greater numbers of junior doctors and health care professionals will be attracted to us and choose to join our Trust on a permanent basis when they have completed their training”.
