My name is Laura Chapman and I am the Programme Director for Palliative Medicine here in the Mersey Deanery. My role is to manage the training programme for Specialist Registrars. I work very closely with Dr Cathy Lewis Jones who is the Regional Specialty Advisor and the other Educational Supervisors across the network.
The Educational Supervisors meet every two months and there is a trainee representative on that group providing a formal link with all the Specialist Registrars. There is also a Palliative Medicine STEC which meets twice a year and again has SpR representation.
I work as a Consultant at the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals, and at Marie Curie Hospice Liverpool. Having trained in Merseyside I hope that I have a good understanding of both the rotation and the various issues facing Specialist Registrars.
I aim to meet all new trainees as they join the programme as part of their induction and am fully committed to ensuring that this rotation delivers high quality training for all trainees.
I am very keen to get feedback from SpRs and therefore would welcome any comments that you may have throughout your rotation in Palliative Medicine. Please contact me directly or discuss any issues which arise with the trainee representative.
