An award-winning November was capped off in style for the James Paget University Hospital, with a fourth success for the month.
Fresh from claiming three separate awards in as many weeks, the hospital collecting a fourth prize at the Learning Technologies Awards.
Competing against companies from a variety of different types of organisation - from banks to supermarkets - the hospital collected a silver award for its training of surgeons in the Best Use of Blended Learning category.
It won the award in conjunction with Norwich-based Cutting Edge Medical Education, with which it has been collaborating over a training scheme for surgeons.
The award was won for an online programme for post-graduate medical education, which was launched by consultant surgeon trainers Jerome Pereira and Sam Leinster, along with surgeon Sue Down.

The programme consists of online lectures about operative procedures and best practice, discussion boards for problems and access to a variety of expert opinion via the internet.
Professor Pereira said: 'The programme was designed to address the challenges of training junior doctors and has given us scientifically significant results.

- 2 Village rounds on council over 'disgraceful' road resurfacing that covered cycle lanes and blocked drains
- 3 Missing man found by off-duty police officer
- 4 Man in 50s dies after crash between car and bicycle
- 5 £5m roadworks on A47 cause delays - and months more to come
- 6 The rise and fall of a beloved Norfolk wildlife park
- 7 Woman's life 'left in pieces' after being raped while unconscious
- 8 Three Norfolk hotels named among the best for romance in the UK
- 9 Couple in 80s given hospital treatment after alleged assault in village
- 10 Man jailed for 24 years for raping and sexually assaulting two girls
'This was the first time we've found the key to the education and training of doctors across the whole country.
'Previously, in a hospital teaching setting there were often small attendances as junior doctors were committed elsewhere, but this meant a wasted resource.
'Now, one tutor can teach many students online - it's a win win in terms of efficiency and cost effectiveness, and students get access to consultants who are experts in their field.'
The award was the fourth collected by the James Paget during the month of November, following a hat-trick of successes at the Nursing Times Awards, the Health Service Journal Awards and the Fab Awards.
At The Nursing Times Awards, the hospital's VIP Pathway claimed the learning disabilities nursing category.
At the HSJ awards its Kiss Goodbye to Sepsis campaign claimed a patient safety award, while it also scooped the Hartly Larkin Award at the Fab Awards - a ceremony which celebrates the care given to people suffering with dementia.
