Maintaining trainee progression and meeting the demands of the service
The 2021 Postgraduate Medical Education and Training Annual Report provides a summary of the work undertaken by NES, and our partners in the Health Boards and Universities, to support medical training and education in Scotland. The report also reaffirms the commitment of our staff to the overall goal of safe and effective patient care.
Professor Stewart Irvine, Director of Medicine said:
“Our key task to recruit, educate and train around 6000 trainee doctors has never been more challenging and we describe how this has been achieved against the challenges thrown up by the pandemic, through carefully agreed UK wide mitigations and the efforts of our medical and administrative staff who have adapted to the situation and worked to provide innovative solutions to the many hurdles that have had to be overcome.”
