The aim of the Specialty School is to provide the highest quality training, focussed on the service required by the NHS and delivered to explicit standards, so that patient care is delivered by competent doctors.

There are two training schemes in the Northern Region, one based in Newcastle and hospitals in the north of the region and one based in Teesside and hospitals in the south of the region. Training rotations include both teaching hospitals and district general hospitals.

Currently there are 36 Doctors in specialist radiology training based in the Newcastle Rotation and 12 Doctors in specialist radiology training based on the Teesside rotation.

The Northern Region Radiology Training Programme has an excellent reputation for training.  The pass rate for FRCR 1 is 100% and the pass rate for the FRCR 2b exam at first attempt is high.  Most trainees have passed all 6 modules by the end of year 3.  All trainees in the region over recent years have been successful at appointment to the Consultant post or overseas Fellowship post of their choice.

The purpose of these pages is to provide you with useful education and training information, which will assist you throughout your rotations.
