Opportunities within NTW

NTW is the hub for a variety of exciting specialist psychiatry services. It hosts the Regional Affective Disorders service which is one of the limited tertiary services in the UK that provide inpatient and outpatient services for complex affective disorders. The other specialist services include the Neuropsychiatry service, Regional Eating Disorders service, Perinatal service, Gender Dysphoria service, Mental Health and Deafness service, Complex Neurodevelopmental Disorder service, Adult ADHD service and a very well established Academic unit and Research and Development Department. 

Excellent training opportunities are available in Forensic psychiatry, Psychotherapy, Learning Disability/Forensic Learning Disability service, Rehabilitation, Community and Urgent Care Adult services, Crisis team, Liaison Psychiatry, Old Age services (functional and organic), Memory Clinics, Child and Adolescent Mental Health etc. 

We have received some outstanding feedback for the clinical and educational supervision in Foundation training that our trainers provide making us one of the few trusts that are a "positive outlier" in the GMC trainee survey in 2013-2014.

All of our Foundation Year 1 supervisors are Educational Supervisors within the Foundation Program scheme, participate in ARCP panels and are well versed in Foundation e-portolio and curriculum requirements.

We support all our Foundation trainees to engage in Clinical Governance opportunities such as audits and service evaulations and there have been several audits that the Foundation trainees have completed individually or with orther core trainees in their placements here. We aim to develop a dedicated section fror Foundation trainees in the Trust Medical Development day that will include poster presentations, presentations of other outstanding achievement etc.

Examples of completed audit projects by Foundation trainees are available from our audit department.

Foundation trainees will be encouraged to participate in other available opportunities such as the Communication skill courses, psychotherapy supervision/Balint groups - some of which are specifically targeted towards Foundation and GP trainees.

We have well organised Post Graduate Case Conference and Journal Club Programmes and sessions running across the trust. It is mandatory for each trainee to attend these sessions which are bleep free and provide opportunity to learn from cases in different specialities in psychiatry. All trainees will also have the opportunity to present in this forum.

Our trust has received excellent feedback from Foundation school visits that have highlighted several areas of good practice.
