The Medical Education Department is keen to support consultants. The trust knows that consultants are generally keen, intelligent, motivated, articulate, insightful, pragmatic and innovative. Furthermore, new consultants come to us having reflected on lengthy experience from training in other units.
You are often in leadership roles and we need you to support our trainees and other doctors not in training posts. Please come and see us in the Postgraduate Education centres. We give advice to new consultants. We are very keen to develop consultants as Clinical Supervisors and Educational Supervisors for our trainees.
It can be particularly difficult for this group of trust employees to fit in with a raft of processes and layers of bureaucracy. Many of these processes are nationally-imposed or nationally-monitored. There are around 30 sub-committees of the clinical board which would benefit from you getting involved. The Clinical Leadership agenda is about change with strong insight and understanding. You are very well respected and have impact. Please also encourage your colleagues (trainees, consultants and non-training doctors) to help work with the trust to achieve “excellence”.
