Neonatal grid training experiences: a UK-wide survey
Level 3 neonatal subspecialty training is assessed by an outcomes-based curriculum and can be undertaken at one of 15 deaneries across the UK. We undertook a survey to collate the experience of neonatal grid trainees across the UK with regards to the training they are receiving, to assess if and how neonatal units offer support to grid trainees towards achieving their competencies. The results demonstrated a concerning disparity between trainees’ experience across the UK compared to the competency-based curriculum outlined by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, creating significant potential gaps in trainees’ experience in preparing them for the consultant role.
