The Generalist School as part of ‘Enhance’ in Health Education England North East 

The North East Yorkshire region is part of a national rollout to explore, promote and deliver generalist skills as part of the national  ‘enhance’ programme of work across England.
Generalism is about broadening and keeping breadth of clinical skills and developing understanding of each other across healthcare settings.

The programme is responding to the needs of the future, with population needs becoming more complex and people living longer. The programme follows the Future Doctor Report and further detail on the national work and roll out can be found on the following page
HEE NEY have, as part of the trailblazer (or pilot), established two Place Based Schools including one in North Cumbria (hosted by North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Trust) and another in Yorkshire.
Our approach is multi-professional and geographically focused. The trailblazer invites learners from the local healthcare system across North Cumbria to join a 1 year programme that has been developed to align with and complement local needs. It covers learning such as equality, diversity and inclusion, human factors and food insecurity, environmental sustainability and complex multi-morbidity and importance collaboration to provide person centred care.
Delivery of the programme is led by a local Head of School, Dr Ruth O’Dowd. It is supported by our Regional Postgraduate Dean, Professor Namita Kumar.
