One of our trainee doctors, Dr James Houston, was a of the winner of the Health Education England’s Better Training Better Care Inspire Improvement initiative for trainee led improvement projects.

Health Education England (HEE) has funded nine projects led by trainee doctors to help improve their education and training, and as a result, patient care. From apps and educational sessions, to databases mentoring, the nine winning projects either have a local focus that can be adopted across the country, or impact on the role of the trainee at a national level.

James was part of a team Will Barker, Ed Mew and James Houston, who developed the ‘Doctors Advancing Patient Safety (DAPS) Toolbox’, providing doctors with a hospital specific, online directory of need-to-know information.
