City Hospitals Sunderland ranked top NE acute trust by doctors in training

A recent survey of junior doctors has ranked City Hospitals Sunderland NHS Trust as the top acute trust in the region for postgraduate training.

The GMC survey looks at the quality of postgraduate medical education training across the UK and ranked the Trust 25th nationally out of 207 trusts / boards.

The survey is conducted annually to gauge the view of doctors in training to ensure that they receive the highest quality training in a safe and effective clinical environment. The North East came out top in 15 of the 17 indicators, which is a great boost to the NHS across the region.

Catherine Emmerson, Director of Medical Education, said: “We are delighted to have been recognised at the top acute trust in the region for postgraduate medical education. This shows that the Trust provides an excellent working environment for trainees and makes them feel supported and confident to progress in their careers.

“A lot of hard work goes on behind the scenes and I would like to thank all colleagues that support our trainees and give them the very best standards of training and mentoring. I would also like to pay tribute to our doctors in training. They are fantastic ambassadors for the Trust and I am pleased to say that all our F1 and F2 trainees have all successfully progressed this year and will now continue onto their second year of training or into other posts.”
