Wessex Cardiology Trainees

Trainee Survey and Rotational Planning Meeting.

Dear All,

I hope you are enjoying the last of the summer sun! A few reminders.

1) The Wessex SpR Trainee survey is live. This is a key way to get anonymous feedback from everyone in the region for training over the last year. There are only a couple of weeks left before the STC meeting and the responses are slowly coming in but a lot are still outstanding. Please click here to complete it.

2) A reminder that the Rotational Planning meeting is at Southern House on 12/09/2019. Please find here the up-to-date rota. If you want to discuss your preferred place of work you need to be there (unless OOP).

3) The September, October and November training days are open to sign up. Get the study leave booked in and I look forward to seeing you all there!

4) Finally I will be organising drinks and dinner after the National Training Day in September (RCP, London). Let me know if you are heading up for the meeting.



2019 Survey and November training day

Dear All,

1.  This years survey is ready to complete.  Please click here.  This is your chance to feed back to the Specialist Training Committee about your training over the last 12 months - positive and negative.  Please take 5-10 minutes to fill this in over the next couple of weeks.

2.  If you would like to attend the 26th November training day on 'difficult areas of the curriculum to sign off' please register with Sally ASAP, sallyolsen@doctors.net.uk.  We are hoping to offer the training day nationally but want to know how many Wessex trainees are interested as a priority.

Many thanks!

Best wishes,
