The Health Education East of England’s (HEEoE) Local Education and Training Board (LETB) agrees a contract with the Trust to provide education, training and supervision to ‘doctors in training’ to an agreed standard.
The HEEoE Director of Education & Quality Postgraduate Dean’s representative at the Trust is the Director of PGME, who has overall responsibility for developing medical and dental education within the Trust.
We are committed to meeting the required standards of regional and national medical education bodies and undertake this with the support of a trained Education Faculty. We make every effort to ensure that trainees progress to their next level of training.
