Praise from Trainee Doctors for The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust

05 Nov 2015 11:43:14

Trainee doctors have praised the training offered to them at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust as some of the best in the country.

The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust (TRFT) has been highlighted as one of the best performers in a nationwide survey carried out by the General Medical Council (GMC) – the independent body which is responsible for improving medical education and practice across the UK.

TRFT earned top ten places in a number of categories in the GMC survey for doctors at the F2 stage (the second year of their training) including: Overall Satisfaction; Clinical Supervision; Supportive Environment; Educational Supervision; Access to Educational Resources and Feedback.

Dr Alison Cooper, a Consultant Anaesthetist based at Rotherham Hospital who is also the Trust’s Director of Medical Education explains: “Each year the General Medical Council surveys all doctors in training in the UK using a national survey tool and publishes the data.

“This year we have done well in a number of areas, with our trainees in Foundation Year Two reporting particularly high levels of satisfaction with relation to Educational Supervision and Supportive Learning environment.

“This is recognition for how much effort we make here in training the doctors of the future, the quality of our facilities and the high calibre of our senior clinicians who provide invaluable advice, guidance and clinical leadership for these doctors at the start of their career.

Dr Conrad Wareham, Medical Director for The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust adds: “Recruiting high quality medical staff is a challenge for Trusts across the country, and we are working hard to create an attractive working environment that will hopefully encourage the best trainees to stay in Rotherham and build their careers caring for patients here.

“This survey shows that our efforts are paying off, and the results are a tribute to all my colleagues whose enthusiasm and dedication to providing the very best training are clearly inspiring a new generation of doctors.”
