Over 330 doctors are embarking on the next chapter of their medical careers at Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust, helping support staff and benefit patients.
This number includes 132 trainee doctors, who have all completed medical school and are ready to take on a two-year foundation programme at the Trust, where they will move across departments and wards, at Basildon, Broomfield and Southend and satellite sites, to learn all aspects of their jobs.
After the two years, they may decide to specialise in a particular area, undertake core training or become a GP. The Trust also welcomed 205 doctors who have come from other hospitals. This is part of an annual rotation that happens at this time of year, which also sees doctors who joined the Trust last year move to another Trust as part of their final training.”
Dr Johnson Samuel, Group Director of Medical Education, said: “I am so pleased to welcome our new doctors and thank them for choosing Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust.
“Doctors are absolutely central in making our hospitals the great places that they are by delivering excellent care to our patients.
“We hope to inspire the next generation in years to come and wish all of our doctors the very best with their careers.”
One of those who has joined the Trust this year is Dr Sumbal Bhatti. She said: “I’m so happy to be here and put my learnt skills into practice. I’m most excited to gain experience in different departments, particularly plastic surgery, which is an area I wish to specialise in.”
