North West General Surgery

General Surgery covers a whole range of subspecialities. All trainees train in Emergency General Surgery but most specialise in either Colorectal, Upper GI, Breast, HPB, Transplant, Endocrine, Trauma or Rural and Remote.

 

We run two large training programmes with multiple opportunities. The East Sector, based in Greater Manchester, Lancashire and South Cumbria; and the West Sector based in Cheshire and Merseyside.

 

From August 2018, the North West will be taking part in the Improving Surgical Training (IST) pilot, a new competence-based, run through surgical training programme in General Surgery. IST posts will be available in both the East and West Sectors from ST1 level.

General Surgery training in HEE North West is divided between two sectors and each have their own Training Programme Director. Please select one of the following for further information on each sector:
