Acute Medical Unit facilities at The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust (RWT) have been rated number one in the UK in a nationwide survey of trainee registrars.
The Unit scored highest in 14 key areas in the GMC National Survey 2014-15, including Overall Satisfaction, Clinical Supervision, Clinical Supervision (Out of Hours), Handover, Induction, Adequate Experience, Supportiuve environment, Workload, Educational Supervision, Access to Educational Resources, Feedback, Local Teaching, Regional Teaching and Study Leave.
The Acute Medical Unit (AMU) is the first point of entry for patients referred to hospital as emergencies by their GP and those requiring admission from the Emergency Department.
Dr Sabina Moolla, Consultant Acute Physician, said: “We have consistently been among the leaders in this annual survey but to come top out of every other Trust is a tremendous achievement.
“As well as beaing an accolade for the Trust and its staff, this also makes RWT more attractive to trainee registrars who want a career in the NHS.”
Trust Chief Executive David Loughton paid tribute to the team and said the survey results were good news for patients.
He said: “They show we are providing high quality training across a whole range of indicators, and making sure registrars are happy in their work and proud to be a part of the AMU team.
“They have recognised the supportive environment, teaching quality and clinical supervision they receive which are all key to qualoity training, and are vital to the service we provide to our patients.”
