Quality Reports


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 HEE local office. The 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 North East and North Cumbria.


Survey Results 2022

The North East and North Cumbria has once again been rated #1 overall and also #1 in 11 out of 18 of the longstanding indicators the GMC uses to evaluate training and as #2 in 5 of the other indicators. The 'Facilities' indicator was the lowest ranked at #6 and this has improved significantly on 2021 feedback.

The feedback reflects the huge amount of hard work trainers, placement providers, and their education teams, the whole HEENE team, and the Lead Employer Trust have done to prioritise training in what has once again been a most challenging year for the NHS.

Areas, where the region ranked number one, include overall satisfaction, clinical supervision, clinical supervision out of hours, reporting systems, work load, teamwork, supportive environment, induction, adequate experience, educational governance, and feedback.
