A&E and ENT- Darlington Memorial Hospital

Trainee post evaluation August 13 - 'Overall the post was great – a good mix of ENT/A&E, well supported and plenty of opportunity to get assessments done and go to teaching...I would thoroughly recommend this post to future GP trainee.'

In these posts, three months is spent in ENT and three months in the A&E department of the hospital, which is 16 miles from Northallerton. 

Experience is gained in all aspects of ENT work, including emergency admissions.  GPSTs have the opportunity to take part in ward, outpatient and theatre work.  There is a well-organised teaching programme and the weekly schedule allows for attendance at the VTS weekly study afternoon.

The A&E department handles 38,000 patients a year, is designated a major trauma centre and a major accident-receiving centre. There is on site CT and MRI scanning. Experience is wide, varied and well supervised.  There are daily teaching sessions in the department.
