GMC National Trainee Survey Results

The GMC National Training Surveys are organised and managed by the GMC and are facilitated by Deaneries and HEE local offices throughout the UK.

The Trainee Survey has been running annually since 2007 and now forms part of the evidence base for the GMC’s Quality Improvement Framework and provides a snapshot of trainee opinions and views of the training posts and programmes in each deanery/HEE local office. The deanery/HEE local office uses the responses from the surveys to identify areas of concern to be investigated or areas of good practice which can be shared to improve training throughout Health Education North East.


2021 Survey Results

The North East and North Cumbria are again top of the class for postgraduate medical training once again. 

Junior doctors, who are training in hospitals, GP practices and other healthcare settings, ranked the region as number one in the UK in 11 of 18 of the longstanding indicators the GMC uses to evaluate training, and the region was also rated in the top 3 for the other 7 indicators.  The feedback reflects the huge amount of work trainers, placement providers and their education teams have done to prioritise training in what has been the most challenging of years.

The consistency with which we have achieved number one rankings, secures the region as providing some of the best postgraduate medical training in the UK.
