Basildon Rotations

IMTs (1&2) rotate through six specialties at four monthly intervals. IM3 rotate through two specialties at 6 monthly intervals.

The Essex Cardiothoracic Centre (CTC) is based on the Basildon Hospital site. Although there are no IMT placements in the CTC, the DGH teams are frequently asked to provide specialist opinions in the centre and the tertiary cardiology team deliver specific lectures to IMTs.
