Basildon was established as a Training scheme at the start of mandatory Vocational Training and has an excellent reputation for providing a wide range of stimulating study days. It is based at the Basildon General Hospital using the excellent facilities of the Robert Brown Postgraduate Centre. The Centre has high quality teaching rooms and an on-site simulation suite with a 13 station hands on room equipped with the latest phantom heads. It is used for a variety of study days throughout the year. We ensure the required educational needs are met with a good mix of Day Release Course topics presented in a manner to make the year enjoyable and lively. The study days are facilitated by professionals of the highest calibre, many of whom are either general practitioners or specialists. We also actively encourage Trainers to partake in study days. Every opportunity is given to Foundation Dentists to interact in sessions and question what they know. We take the feedback of our Foundation Dentists very seriously and each year the programme is modified to reflect this and the requirements of this ever changing profession.
The Training Programme Director is Andrea Ogden. She is a GDP in an Essex practice and lives in London. Andrea has been a past trainer and speaker on the Essex Coast scheme. She is very approachable and works closely with the Trainers and trainees to ensure they have an enjoyable and successful training year. She is aided by the very organised and capable Dental Administrator Janet Ferriter, who is involved closely with the Scheme and the trainees.
Barely forty minutes train journey from the heart of London (Fenchurch Street), Basildon is currently undergoing renewal with the creation of the Basildon Enterprise Corridor.
