In my capacity as the faculty lead for ACCS and the College tutor for Emergency Medicine. I would like to welcome you to our ACCS and Emergency Medicine training program at East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust.
We are as a trust committed to providing the highest quality of training in all components of ACCS and Emergency Medicine training. The majority of our ACCS trainees and all higher trainees in Emergency Medicine will be based at the William Harvey hospital in Ashford.
You will receive intensive and high quality training in Emergency Medicine and ACCS relevant specialties by enthusiastic trainers who are very ably supported by our fantastic Education Centre staff. There is a generous study leave allowance and your attendance at regional training days will be assured.
There are 6 FRCEM consultants at WHH and 1 FRCEM consultant at QEQM, all QESP or equivalent qualified, one dual ITU/EM trained, which is ideal for ACCS trainees.
There is protected time for teaching in all ACCS specialties with twice-weekly teaching sessions in Emergency Medicine. The sessions are always led by consultants.
We are a forward-looking trust and hold training and teaching at the core of our functioning. I hope your stay with us will be a rewarding experience for all of us.
