UCLPartners is the Lead Provider for Anaesthesia training in North Central and North East London as well as parts of Essex and Hertfordshire. Two Schools of Anaesthesia deliver this training, which are the North Central School and the Barts and the London School. Both have a long record of offering first class training programmes which are tailored to the needs of the individual trainee whist ensuring the whole of the Royal College of Anaesthetists( RCoA) curriculum is met. There are a multitude of training opportunities and additional experience available in both District General Hospitals, Teaching Hospitals, and specialist centres. Trainees choose one of the two schools at recruitment but under the UCLPartners ‘umbrella’ there is flexibility to allow trainees to work across the placements in both sectors. We have regional teaching at higher and post fellowship level as well as research opportunities and specialist fellowships. Simulation training is provided as part of the training programme at all levels. The School Coordinators are the trainees’ day to day point of contact; Miss Georgina Johnson North Central Coordinator E firstname.lastname@example.org Mrs Lucy Hamer North East Coordinator E email@example.com

Training at UCLPartners (A trainee representatives perspective)
In August 2013 I was voted in as trainee representative for Barts and the London School of Anaesthesia following a school-wide democratic vote conducted by the trainees. This privilege has been, so far, an incredible experience and one that I would encourage other trainees to undertake at some point in their career.
Barts and the London School of Anaesthesia is fully focussed on ensuring the highest level of training for all of its trainees and this is unerringly echoed by UCL Partners. During this time UCLP have been instrumental in not only incorporating trainee representatives from both the Central and Barts and the London Schools of Anaesthesia on to pertinent discussion panels, but have also been overwhelmingly receptive to trainee views attempting to accommodate them where possible.
As trainee representative I look forward to collaborating with UCLP to ensure quality anaesthetic training for the future.
