Junior doctors at the Norfolk and Norfolk University Hospital (NNUH) have rated it in the top three for overall satisfaction in the East of England and top in Norfolk and Suffolk in a recent national survey.

Each year the General Medical Council (GMC) asks every doctor in postgraduate training what they think about the quality of their training.

Some of the areas the survey looked at were clinical supervision, work load, experience and handover during shifts, work load, curriculum coverage, educational supervision and feedback.

Every year between 350 and 400 post graduate doctors train at the NNUH.

Medha Sule, director of medical education and consultant gynaecologist at NNUH said: 'We are absolutely delighted to have received such high results in the survey once again. It shows how hard our staff work to deliver high quality training and the support they give to our junior doctors. The national training surveys are crucial in making sure doctors in training receive high quality education and training in a safe and effective clinical environment, and they give doctors an opportunity to give confidential feedback on their perceptions of their local training environments.'

Miss Sule added: 'Taking a look at the feedback supplied by the survey is very important to us. We always look at what areas we have particularly excelled in so that we can share with other teams, but equally, we look at the areas where we may need to adapt our training programmes.'

Jeremy Over, NNUH director of workforce, said: 'Understanding the views of our junior doctors is very important to us and the survey is a chance for us to use the feedback to learn and improve further. Congratulations to all those involved in helping us achieve a great result.'
