What are the benefits of training at South Tees?
South Tees has an excellent track record in training at all levels, from undergraduate through to consultant level evidenced both through word of mouth and official GMC channels.
The field of experience of the trainers is vast; the case-load mix is wide and varied; and most specialty interests are represented by our consultants.
South Tees also has the added advantage of being close to the sea, the hills and the shops, so there’s a little bit of something for everyone.
What support do you now give to foundation doctors?
Personally I’m involved in the postgraduate team as quality lead and I’m also a regional surgical advisor for the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
So I am available for advice should anyone want it! Within my role I’m also regularly involved in clinical and educational supervision at foundation and other training levels.
I am very interested in the personal and professional growth of those I get to work with. As such I’m always available for chat (preferably over coffee!).
How do you manage your work life balance?
I want the best for my patients, and I want the best for my family and these are two elements that I strive to balance.
There’s mountain biking, road biking, motorcycling, running and swimming, cafés and fine dining, hill walking and camping, friends and family – sometimes without the kids, but better when done with the kids!
Life is definitely full and life is definitely good here on Teesside.
