"I have thoroughly enjoyed Anaesthetic training in the East Midlands.  With one of the busiest trauma centres in the UK as part of the rotation, I have gained a wealth of clinical experience whilst being challenged daily to strive for excellence in patient care.  Outside of work, its central location and close proximity to the Peak District has allowed me to pursue an active, outdoor lifestyle as well as a busy social life!" - Georgina Pipe, Trainee

Why you should train in anaesthetics in the East Midlands

One of the main benefits of living and working in the East Midlands is that you have easy access to a wide number of hospitals without the need to move home. This means you'll benefit from experience in a range of different hospitals while benefiting from the stability of knowing that you, your partner and your family can work long term in the same area.

When you come to the East Midlands you'll learn in large regional hospitals serving millions of people. You'll benefit from unrivalled local expertise in regional anaesthesia in Derby and Nottingham as well as a department that serves the busiest trauma centre in the UK. And, with well established advanced airway teaching and research, you'll have opportunities that you won't find elsewhere.

For example, in Nottingham you'll join the leading emergency surgery/anaesthesia centre in the UK, setting the standards for emergency surgery nationwide. And, in Leicester, you'll join a specialist team leading the way in cardiac anaesthesia.

When you train in Anaesthetics in the East Midlands you'll also benefit from grant-funded research opportunities.  The academic department in the East Midlands is one of the largest in the country and undertakes a wide portfolio of research from in silico modelling of basic science, educational and patient safety research to Biomedical Engineering and Applied Optics. 

You'll also be supported by national and international level experts in a range of sub-specialties including:

  • obstetric anaesthesia
  • regional anaesthesia
  • trauma and emergency surgery
  • simulation

The East Midlands offers you a highly structured Anaesthetics training programme where you'll be supported by some of the leading experts and facilities in the country.
You'll also benefit from living in a thriving and growing region that is popular with residents and tourists alike. Visitors to Nottingham spent over £1.5 billion in 2015 - the sixth highest amount in the UK - while Lonely Planet said of Derby that 'there's a lot to offer there that you don't get anywhere else in England'.
Leicester boasts Premiership football and rugby, the biggest Diwali celebrations outside India and the UK's leading attraction dedicated to space exploration while the Daily Telegraph called Lincoln's Steep Hill 'one of the prettiest streets in Britain'.
With superb transport links - Northampton is just 46 minutes from London by train - it's easy to enjoy the Peak District National Park, the British Grand Prix, Lincoln's stunning cathedral, Sherwood Forest and the final resting place of King Richard III. Steeped in history, brimming with life, Lincoln is a must see historic city which in 2014, was listed by the Sunday Times as one of the 'best places to live’ in the UK.
