Foundation Programme

QE Gateshead is a busy district general hospital which has earned an excellent reputation for delivering a high standard of training.

We have achieved this by providing a supportive and welcoming environment offering broad-based experience in the majority of medical, surgical, critical care and psychiatric specialities. Many of our foundation trainees were medical students who were so impressed with teaching in Gateshead during their placement that they simply wanted to come back.

In this year’s Your School Your Say survey 96.4% of current foundation doctors would recommend the Trust to a friend that is thinking of applying.
