Medical education gets deanery praise
19 November 2012

Trainee doctors at Tameside Hospital are happy to recommend the hospital’s training programme, according to a recent review of postgraduate medical education at the hospital.
A report by the North Western Deanery, following a scheduled review of postgraduate medical education at Tameside Hospital, has praised the hospital for its enthusiasm and commitment to education and training.
The review, earlier this year, looked at Specialty, GP and Foundation Training programmes and highlighted improvements across all areas.
Tameside Hospital’s Medical Director Tariq Mahmood said: “The overall report is extremely positive, recognising the enthusiasm and commitment to education and training of our consultants and the processes within many departments for the discussion of education and training.
“The report also recognises the significant improvements made within Adult Medicine and Emergency Medicine. And it was pleasing to note that the majority of trainees across all training programmes, reported that they would recommend the training programme at Tameside.  
“We will be working with our doctors and the Deanery to look at how we can further improve our medical training experience.”
