Hi to all from Su Laurent, Chair of the UCLP STC and totally new to blogging!
Glad to say that the UCLP TPDs have now been appointed and I’m delighted to have a great team working with me to support all our ST1-5 trainees, educational supervisors, and college tutors.
They are: Quen Mok, Caroline Fertleman, Olu Wilkey, Shanthi Shanmugalingam, Sandhia Naik, and Ian Sanderson (Academic lead for London)
Each TPD covers the ST1-5 trainees in a patch and also has a lead role within the STC. We will be making ourselves known to you and hoping to meet any of you who would like an informal chat about careers, rotations, OOPs etc.
We want to continue to be part of the many excellent pan London training initiatives and to bring some great training ideas from other regions more locally. You’ll notice that the training diary for our region is a teensy bit empty at the moment, that’s not because there’s nothing going on but because I need a volunteer to fill in what’s happening in local Trusts such a MRCPCH training and SIM training.
I hope that all college tutors will come to the STC meetings on the second Tuesday afternoon of alternate months at Shared Services. The next meeting will be on March 11th. The first part is a pan London update/networking session for tutors and the second part is the patch based STC.
Looking forward to getting to know you all
