The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust in top three trusts to be a junior doctor
13 September 2021
We are pleased to have been named as one of the top three trusts in the UK to be a junior doctor in the 2021 GMC national training survey, receiving an overall satisfaction rate of nearly 88%.
The annual survey, carried out by the General Medical Council, monitors and reports on the quality of postgraduate medical education and training in the UK. Doctors are asked for their views and feedback on a variety of aspects to their education and wellbeing.
Along with our overall satisfaction rate, our clinical supervision of junior doctors also rated highly, receiving a 96% satisfaction score. The Trust’s local teaching provision also remained in the top quartile of all Trusts for the third year running, achieving 95% better response than all other Trusts.
Dinesh Sinha, Medical Director at the Tavistock and Portman, said;
“Congratulations to all our clinical and educational trainees and supervisors. The result is a credit to our motivated and engaged team in clinical services and medical education.”
Jessica Yakeley, Director of Medical Education, added;
“This is fantastic, especially during Covid when things have been more difficult for our trainees. I’m proud to be the Director of Medical Education in our trust and all credit must also go to our Medical Education Team.”
The Trust offers training for doctors at all levels of their development, from medical student placements to postgraduate specialty trainings in psychiatry, to continuing professional development for consultants, reflecting the continuously evolving field of Medical Education.
