The Trust receives top rating from trainee doctors

The Trust has received the top rating from a recent survey of trainee doctors who spent time with us during their rotation.

As a host organisation on the West Midlands North Foundation Programme, we support first and second year trainee doctors on a four month psychiatry rotation. During this time they have the opportunity to work as part of inpatient and community teams, gaining hands-on experience of psychiatry in practice.

Results from the survey placed our Trust as one of only 20 within the programme to achieve the top score. These results reflect the hard work of all staff who have contributed to providing an excellent training environment.

Kate Gingell, Joint Medical Director, commented “This is fantastic feedback and confirms that as a Trust we try our best to provide a good quality and supportive training environment. Thank you to our postgraduate office, enthusiastic trainers, nurses, occupational therapists and psychologists who have made sure that trainee doctors get such a positive experience when on placement with us.”
