Our priority is to ensure that our trainees are confident in providing high quality patient care, supported by excellent trainers and underpinned by the GMC’s standards for medical education and training.

Postgraduate education information for doctors in the north east is available on a separate website.

Locally, we provide postgraduate medical education and training, covering hospital medicine and general practice, including recruitment, foundation, core and specialty training, medical education centres and courses, study leave, appraisals and medical leadership.


What’s special about us?

We pride ourselves on providing high quality education and training. This is supported by trainee feedback given in the ‘Your School Your Say’ survey completed by our foundation trainees and the General Medical Council (GMC) National Training Survey, where we have been number one for overall trainee satisfaction for a number of years and rated highly in several other areas.

Your trainee journey with us will be as seamless as possible. All trainees have one employer throughout rotations reducing the need for multiple applications and checks at each trust.

The Lead Employer Trust (LET) will be on hand to support you with HR functions and can be contacted on 0191 275 4782.

In addition to the high quality training facilities on offer the north east is also a fantastic place to live. Wherever you are based you will be in close proximity to remarkable countryside, breath taking coastal towns and vibrant cities. A financial benefit of living in the north east is that the average cost of living is much lower than other parts of the country, allowing for a more comfortable standard of living without compromising on the beautiful locations.
