General Surgery East Sector Training Programme Director
Overview of General Surgery in the East Sector
Trainees in ST3 and ST4 will be allocated to one of 2 geographical sectors within the East Sector of HEE NW for Intermediate Training in General Surgery. Attachments in ST3 and ST4 are for 6 months rotating through posts in several subspecialties with Emergency General Surgery. Trainees choose a Subspecialty(Breast, Colorectal, Endocrine, Hepatobilary, Transplant or Upper GI) for Final Surgical Training. Subspecialty posts are spread throughout the Sector.
Trainees in ST3-8 will be expected to attend any local educational programmes which are held within the hospital they are working in.
There is a comprehensive teaching programme which takes place on alternate Friday afternoons at the Education Centre at Chorley General Hospital. Attendance is mandatory and an attendance register is kept and monitored. We pride ourselves as giving one of the best regional teaching programmes in the country.

Research and Audit
Trainees are encouraged to develop a research interest and to carry out Audit against NICE Guidelines. This is assessed as part of the ARCP process. All trainees should be actively involved in audit on an ongoing basis and be in a position to demonstrate this at annual appraisal and ARCP interviews. Teaching of less experienced medical colleagues, medical students, nurses and other paramedical staff is an integral part of the post and all trainees are expected to be involved in this.
