Unique selling point for training  Perhaps the most comprehensive general respiratory experience available in a DGH in the East of England.
Comments We are one of the larger DGHs in the region serving a population of 365,000. We offer a broad training opportunity in a range of services not often found in a single centre DGH training post. We have a number of sub-specialist training opportunities as well as the routine general respiratory/GIM caseload, in sufficient volumes to ensure a comprehensive and well-valued training experience. We are a cohesive department, valuing harmonious working practices and appropriate clinical supervision whilst offering opportunities for trainees to develop and grow the skills and independence necessary to progress to CCT. Feedback from the RMTC and ARCP process regarding our training is consistently complimentary. The CQC has rated our hospital as "good" with our emergency department rated as "outstanding". All this within 1 hour of London and Cambridge and in a coastal county of outstanding beauty!
