Trainees benefit from a high level of one-to-one consultant supervisionDr Sheena McLaggan
As TPD I am constantly looking to adapt and improve the scheme in response to feedback from trainers and trainees alike. We have established a Training Faculty in the EBH scheme which provides a platform whereby trainees and trainers can exchange ideas and information on a regular basis. We promote a training environment where the trainers are approachable and readily available. The scheme benefits from having a large number of experienced and committed trainers who are keen to teach.
They are also encouraged to take on management roles. Recently these have included being on National panels, a PACS procurement board, website development, software development. There are always opportunities to take on and develop such roles during your training.
The three training schemes in the Eastern Deanery (EBH, Cambridge and Norfolk & Norwich) work closely together and trainees frequently move between the 3 schemes for attachments if it is of benefit to their training. However, each EBH trainee is essentially based in one of the DGH’s for the entirety of their training.
As far as possible, we try to accommodate requests from individual trainees (for example placements in a certain geographical area), and this flexibility is another of the great benefits of being in our scheme. However, any trainee accepting a place on the scheme must be mindful of the fact that it covers a geographically wide area and should therefore be prepared to travel for some parts of their training (including the monthly Part 2 teaching sessions).
