East Yorkshire

East Yorkshire Core Psychiatry rotation

The East Yorkshire Core Psychiatry rotation is centred around the historic city of Kingston Upon Hull, the picturesque county of East Yorkshire and coastal North East Lincolnshire.

From August 2021 there will be 14 training placements provided by Humber NHS and NAViGO Mental Health Trusts within general adult, old age, child and adolescent, liaison, addictions, forensic and intellectual disability psychiatry.

Within the weekly trainee timetable there is protected time available to attend the Core Psychiatry Training Course (MRCPsych course), Trust CPD activities and psychotherapy training.  

There is an active teaching programme each Wednesday morning at the Willerby Lecture theatre, which includes case conferences, critical reviews of academic papers and expert presentations from invited speakers. 

Psychotherapy training is provided locally through case-based discussion (Balint) groups, formal teaching, and long and short cases. Trainees are supervised by non-medical psychotherapists and a medical psychotherapy tutor.

The training rotation has close links with Hull & York Medical School (HYMS) allowing opportunities for academic and undergraduate training.

North Yorkshire Core Psychiatry rotation

The North Yorkshire Core Psychiatry rotation is a popular and well-regarded rotation with an excellent track record of success in the Membership examinations for the Royal College of Psychiatrists (MRCPsych).

Training placements in the Victorian spa town of Harrogate, the ancient market town of Northallerton, the seaside resort of Scarborough and the historic city of York give trainees the opportunity to experience all the advantages of living and working in the largest county in England.

From August 2021 there will be 24 placements within general adult, old age, child and adolescent, intellectual disability, forensic, addictions, assertive outreach, crisis resolution and intensive home treatment psychiatry. The training placements are provided by Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys (TEWV) and Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trusts.

We have an established programme for psychotherapy training, and a dedicated local medical psychotherapy tutor, allowing trainees to meet the curriculum requirements for psychotherapy training.

All trainees are expected to attend the weekly academic training program in York. This includes case presentations and critical appraisal led by trainees, guest lectures from national and international speakers, and MRCPsych exam focused training. Trainees will attend face-to-face and video-conferenced teaching on the Core Psychiatry Training Course (CPTC), which is based in Leeds, up to one day every fortnight. The expanding Hull and York Medical School (HYMS) brings opportunities for trainees to be involved in undergraduate teaching.

All trainees are members of the North Yorkshire Psychiatric Trainees Association, which arranges an active social calendar and meets monthly to discuss local and general training issues. There is a local training committee to discuss programme development attended by trainee, trust medical education, and deanery representatives.
