The training given to doctors working at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has been praised by the General Medical Council (GMC) in its regional review of sites across the North East.
Patients undergoing surgery at the Friarage Hospital can now benefit from having the same nurse or operating department practitioner supporting them throughout their procedure. This means patients are with a familiar member of staff from the moment they go to sleep in the anaesthetic room to the moment they open their eyes in the recovery room.

As the nation marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has been accredited as ‘Veteran Aware’ today (Friday 9 November). This mark of distinction means that patients who have served in the UK armed forces will be cared for by frontline staff who have received training and education on their specific needs, such as mental health, and who can signpost them to local support services.
